Looking to gain some professional experience?

An internship is a short-term job, often unpaid, that gives students and other adults hands-on work experience.

Internships are available in a wide variety of fields in government, private business and non-profit organizations. In general, an internship:

  • Is an agreement between a student (high school, college, or graduate) or adult and an organization or business.
  • Allows a student or emerging professional to gain skills and experience in a short-term, real-world work environment.
  • Can be paid or unpaid.
  • Has to follow certain regulations of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
