Free Intern Job Description Template [just copy & paste!]

Ready to start writing? The 6 intern job descriptions above are a great place to start — or try using this intern job description template as your guide. I’ve listed examples so you can easily copy and paste.



[Here, include the word ‘intern’ and the role’s job title, just like in the intern job description sample screenshots above.]

Tip: Keep your job titles between 1-3 words and 20 syllables or less. This helps with SEO and makes them easier to read. For example, “Software Engineering Intern” is better than “Backend Software Engineering Intern – Remote Support.”



[This is where you write a paragraph about the role.]

Tip: The intern job summary should concisely explain the role. Remember you want to attract candidates interested in learning from experienced professionals in a real-life setting…the summary should sound exciting.

Here’s an example from PEAK6 InsurTech:



[This is where you talk about your intern candidate.]

Include a sentence on:

  • what the intern will do
  • some goals they will reach for
  • how they work with the team (or other teams)

Tip: Look at the intern job descriptions above for inspiration. 



[Here is where you can list the day-to-day intern job duties.]

  • interact with clients and senior executives
  • learn how to work with a project team
  • prepare presentations
  • track and manage spreadsheets
  • manage calendars and schedule meetings

Tip: Keep your “responsibilities” and “intern job duties” lists short. Using more than 7 bullets might make candidates feel underqualified or overwhelmed.



[This section is where you list basic intern qualifications and experience.]

Tip: Include your preferred requirements here or create a “Preferred Requirements” section if there are more than two. 



[List any perks your intern will get if they join the team. And include the intern salary information if you can.]

Tip: Even if it’s a range, list salary details. Candidates spend more time looking at it than anything else. 



[These are some optional sections you might use in your job description for executive administrative assistant.]

  • travel requirements
  • remote work policies
  • disability accommodations
  • how to apply



[Here, you can talk about yourself!]

Some ideas to include:

  • what type of business you are in
  • how great the company is
  • your core values

Tip: I like to save the “About Us” section for the end (even though about 50% of JDs start with About Us). Instead, end your JD with the About Us. That way, you can START your JD about the candidate/role, making them feel valued.



[Most companies have an EEO or diversity statement. You can put yours here.]

Tip: You’ll find more examples in our blog 25 Examples of Awesome Diversity Statements.
