Is there a special title for the person who supervises an intern?

    A non-controversial intern question.

    I'm not sure if it works this way in the USA, but in France internships are an integral part of obtaining a diploma in many, many fields. You (ideally) don't just spend 12 weeks making photocopies, you are actually assigned a specific person to supervise and mentor you while you work. In French, this person is known as a "maÃ[​IMG]tre de stage," which more or less means "internship supervisor." They're a normal employee, often the boss, but take on additional duties during the internship.

    Is there a technical or more specific title for someone occupying this role that I'm not aware of? Does this role even exist in the States?

    Mentor, I suppose, but I have never heard it used as an official title. Trainee Supervisor? Apprenticeship Coordinator?

    In the UK, there are no special names. In any case, it's not something particularly attractive about you that you want to put on your CV.

    No special title exists to my knowledge in the fields with which I am familiar. In general, I don't believe internships are as important in the US as they may be in other places.

    Long ago, there were apprecticeships in lots of skilled manufacturing positions, and there may well have been a title, but the number of those apprenticeships is infintesimally small today.

    Perhaps some of the doctors can weigh in here, as the medical field is the only one, to my knowledge, that remains with a strong internship tradition.

    I know in the '90s it was "Mr. President," but I think that's changed a lot in the last 10 years.

    Thanks Conne.

    Amused but not at all upset that this sort of became a DT.

    I usually just tell them not to call me "hey you" or "dude".
