INTERNSHIP PROGRAM’S WITHDRAWAL OF ENGLISH AND LITERATURE
On October 26, 2020, English and literature department withdrew internship students
which were symbolically carried out in several locations they are district education office
of Gowa Regency and Makassar Immigration office. As many as 127 students from the
seventh took part in the internship program for 40 days in various institutions, both
government and private. After carrying out the internship, later students will make an
internship report and also present it to the supervisor.
There is something interesting about this internship program, students were free to choose
the location of the internship they want, according to their interests, talents and most
importantly their easy access to the internship location. Considering this program is still in
the new normal period, some students choose to do an internship in their respective
hometowns. They choose internships that are easy to reach and in accordance with the
competence of the English literature department such as the tourism and education office
as well as the media. While those who choose a location in Makassar got the opportunity to
do the internship at the Makassar immigration office and also the Language Center for the
province of South Sulawesi.
The program which was implemented for the first time was finally carried out well. From
the location of the internship, the supervisors conveyed a good impression and felt quite
helped by the presence of the students. But in the future, there were still many things that
need to be improved, especially in terms of management of the internships.
