Internship - Wikipedia

An internship is a period of work experience offered by an organization for a limited
period of time.[1] Once confined to medical graduates, the term is now used for a wide
range of placements in businesses, non-profit organizations and government agencies.
They are typically undertaken by students and graduates looking to gain relevant skills
and experience in a particular field. Employers benefit from these placements because
they often recruit employees from their best interns, who have known capabilities, thus
saving time and money in the long run. Internships are usually arranged by third-party
organizations which recruit interns on behalf of industry groups. Rules vary from country
to country about when interns should be regarded as employees. The system can be open
to exploitation by unscrupulous employers.

Internships for professional careers are similar in some ways, but not as rigorous as
apprenticeships for professions, trade, and vocational jobs.[2] The lack of standardization
and oversight leaves the term "internship" open to broad interpretation. Interns may be
high school students, college and university students, or post-graduate adults. These
positions may be paid or unpaid and are temporary.[3]

Typically, an internship consists of an exchange of services for experience between the
intern and the organization. Internships are used to determine if the intern still has an
interest in that field after the real-life experience. In addition, an internship can be used
to create a professional network that can assist with letters of recommendation or lead to
future employment opportunities. The benefit of bringing an intern into full-time
employment is that they are already familiar with the company, their position, and they
ypically need little to no training. Internships provide current college students the ability
to participate in a field of their choice to receive hands on learning about a particular
future career, preparing them for full-time work following graduation.[3][4]



Internships exist in a wide variety of industries and settings. An internship can be paid,
unpaid, or partially paid (in the form of a stipend).[5][6] Internships may be part-time or
full-time and are usually flexible with students' schedules. A typical internship lasts
between one and four months,[7] but can be shorter or longer, depending on the
organization involved. The act of job shadowing may also constitute interning.[8]

  • Paid internships are common in professional fields including medicine,
    architecture, science, engineering, law, business (especially accounting and
    finance), technology, and advertising.[9] Work experience internships usually
    occur during the second or third year of schooling. This type of internship is to
    expand an intern's knowledge both in their school studies and also at the company.
    The intern is expected to bring ideas and knowledge from school into the company.[10]

  • Work research, virtual research (graduation) or dissertation: This is mostly
    done by students who are in their final year of school. With this kind of internship,
    a student does research for a particular company.[11] The company can have something
    that they feel they need to improve, or the student can choose a topic in the company
    themselves. The results of the research study will be put in a report and often will
    have to be presented.[11]

  • Unpaid internships are typically through non-profit charities and think tanks which
    often have unpaid or volunteer positions.[5] State law and state enforcement agencies
    may impose requirements on unpaid internship programs under Minimum Wage Act.
    A program must meet criteria to be properly classified as an unpaid internship.
  • Partially-paid internships is when students are paid in the form of a stipend. Stipends
    are typically a fixed amount of money that is paid out on a regular basis. Usually,
    interns that are paid with stipends are paid on a set schedule associated with the

Another type of internship growing in popularity is the virtual internship, in which the intern
works remotely, and is not physically present at the job location. It provides the capacity to gain
job experience without the conventional requirement of being physically present in an office.
The internship is conducted via virtual means, such as phone, email, and web communication.
Virtual interns generally have the opportunity to work at their own pace.[12]

Internship for a fee

Companies in search of interns often find and place students in mostly unpaid internships,
for a fee.[13] These companies charge students to assist with research, promising to refund the fee
if no internship is found.[14] The programs vary and aim to provide internship placements at
reputable companies. Some companies may also provide controlled housing in a new city,
mentorship, support, networking, weekend activities or academic credit.[6]

How to Identify a Shady Internship

Not all internships are created equal. Some positions that might look like

internships are really just part-time temp jobs available to almost anyone.

They may even be unchallenging busywork that an employer would rather

not assign to staff.


You might get paid at this type of job, but chances are slim you’ll rack up good,

resume-building experience.


Here are some tips for recognizing shady internships:

• It promises quick money and lots of it. If it sounds too good to be true—it is.

• It’s a small organization you can’t find in the Yellow Pages.

• The employer advertises its “internships” on flyers all over campus.

• It’s a sales-related job and the pay is based on commission.

• The employer doesn’t inquire about your experience, background,

or career interests to see if you’re a good fit for the position.

• You get vague answers to your questions about the work you’d be doing.

• The offices are in a questionable location, such as a warehouse area or

a person’s home.

• The employer doesn’t ask you to complete a job application before making

you an offer.

• Your instincts are telling you to get out as fast as you can!

For Interns, All Work and No Payoff
By Alex Williams
Feb. 14, 2014
New York Times

Like other 20-somethings seeking a career foothold, Andrew Lang, a graduate
of Penn State, took an internship at an upstart Beverly Hills production company
at age 29 as a way of breaking into movie production. It didn’t pay, but he hoped
the exposure would open doors.

When that internship proved to be a dead end, Mr. Lang went to work at a second
production company, again as an unpaid intern. When that went nowhere, he left
for another, doing whatever was asked, like delivering bottles of wine to 27 offices
before Christmas. But that company, too, could not afford to hire him, even part time.

A year later, Mr. Lang is on his fourth internship, this time for a company that
produces reality TV shows. While this internship at least pays him
(he makes $10 an hour, with few perks), Mr. Lang feels no closer to a real job and
worries about being an intern forever. “No one hires interns,” said Mr. Lang, who
sees himself as part of a “revolving class of people” who can’t break free of the
intern cycle. “Is this any way to live?”


Call them members of the permanent intern underclass: educated members of the

millennial generation who are locked out of the traditional career ladder and are

having to settle for two, three and sometimes more internships after graduating

college, all with no end in sight.

The Path to Internships
American University, Washington D.C.

One of the greatest advantages to studying in Washington, D.C. is the unparalleled access
that you have to internships. These opportunities enable you to enrich your education
with hands-on experience and to apply lessons learned in the classroom to professional settings.

Half of the time, interns report that their experiences affirm their career aspirations.
However, learning what you dislike in a position, organization or industry is equally valuable.
So too is developing new skills, expanding your list of achievements, and building relationships
with professionals. The more internship experience you have, the more qualified you will likely
be for other internships and jobs. Therefore, start interning as early as you can and explore a wide
variety of opportunities.

About The Met

The Met presents over 5,000 years of art from around the world for everyone
to experience and enjoy. The Museum lives in three iconic sites in New York City—
The Met Fifth Avenue,
C:\Users\David\Documents\The Met

The Met Breuer, and

The Met Cloisters.

Millions of people also take part in The Met experience online.

Since it was founded in 1870, The Met has always aspired to be more
than a treasury of rare and beautiful objects. Every day, art comes alive
in the Museum's galleries and through its exhibitions and events, revealing
both new ideas and unexpected connections across time and across cultures.

Mission Statement

The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded on April 13, 1870,
"to be located in the City of New York, for the purpose of establishing and
maintaining in said city a Museum and library of art, of encouraging and
developing the study of the fine arts, and the application of arts to
manufacture and practical life, of advancing the general knowledge of
kindred subjects, and, to that end, of furnishing popular instruction."[1]

This statement of purpose has guided the Museum for over 140 years.

On January 13, 2015, the Trustees of The Metropolitan Museum of Art
reaffirmed this statement of purpose and supplemented it with
the following statement of mission:

The Metropolitan Museum of Art collects, studies, conserves, and presents
significant works of art across all times and cultures in order to connect
people to creativity, knowledge, and ideas.


The Museum offers internship opportunities for college and graduate students interested in careers
in art museums, as well as New York City–area high school students.

Year-Round Internships

Each activity of UrbanPromise’s year-round program is grounded in the following values and themes:

Although they receive a small stipend for basic living expenses, interns volunteer as staff in Urban Promise’s
after-school and summer camps. Their role is primarily focused on planning for and teaching camp classes
that include arts and crafts, Bible study, homework help, recreation, and performing arts.

Interns work and live in diverse communities. The neighborhoods in which they work are culturally and
ethnically diverse; the families of many camp youth are non-English speakers or recent immigrants to the
United States. In relation to living space, interns are grouped based on their neighborhood camp and live
with program participants from across the country and world.

Participants in the internship program utilize and develop leadership skills through their work in an
often challenging environment, engagement in weekly classes and discussions, and responsibility to
respond to the needs of others—the youth they serve as well as fellow interns. Classes relate to
various aspects of ministry, leadership, poverty, and culture and include guest speakers, film viewings,
and assigned readings.

Unpaid Internships: Bad for Students, Bad for Workers, Bad for Society
Derek Thompson
May 10, 2012
The Atlantic

The economics of unpaid internships are obvious.
Employers are desperate for cheap work,
and "free" is pretty cheap. Workers are desperate for,
well, anything, and students and recent grads are willing
to negotiate their wages down to zero. But the ethics aren't
so clear-cut. If unpaid internships are the key to better jobs
and bigger salaries, should we be concerned about the
millions of lower-class students who can't afford to work for free?


National Geographic

Every year, the National Geographic Society provides a number of students with a paid 
opportunity to spend the summer exploring and learning with us. Our internships are
diverse and designed to give undergraduate and graduate students a well-rounded experience.

The Program

The purpose of these paid internships is to provide educational and work-related opportunities
for undergraduate and graduate students. All interns will perform work on a temporary basis to
gain job-related skills and will engage in other formal learning and educational opportunities.
The program offers support and guidance from a wide array of National Geographic staff and
focuses on giving interns the opportunity to learn from the host department/mentor,
the management team, other staff members, and Human Resources.

Farm Sanctuary is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation
(tax ID number 51-0292919).


Imagine yourself in a place where animals are free from cages and spend their
days basking in the sun, wallowing in the mud, and exploring every nook and
cranny of their fascinating habitats. Open pastures surround you, the air is fresh,
and the pigs grunt their greetings as you walk by. You spend your day working
on projects with one goal in mind: to create a more compassionate world for
farm animals. At the end of the day, you return home to a community of
like-minded people with whom you can discuss ideas, swap stories, and maybe
even share a home-cooked vegan meal. If this sounds like your kind of place,
a Farm Sanctuary internship may be for you.

For more than 25 years, Farm Sanctuary has welcomed interns to work alongside
our expert staff at the nation’s leading nonprofit farm animal protection organization.
Our volunteer internship program has served as a launching pad for countless
activists who’ve gone on to do incredible work for animals in the nonprofit sector and
