Internships & Apprenticeships

Internships were rated by employers as one of the most effective recruiting methods for hiring new college graduates. Internships may be full-time or part-time, depending on the employer’s needs. Most positions are for one semester, though some are designed for longer periods. Internships can be found in corporate and private businesses, government agencies and nonprofit organizations. All internships should have the common goal of providing students supervision and a chance to learn while contributing to an organization. Employers are strongly encouraged to compensate interns through hourly wages, stipends and/or assistance with lodging expenses. The seven factor test can help an employer determine if the internship offered can be considered a legitimate unpaid internship. Full details are available in Fact Sheet #71: Internship.
