An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.

Interns may be paid, unpaid, or a combination of the two and are typically appointed for no more than one year. They may not perform bargaining unit work. A non-student may not be an intern.

To appoint a Paid Intern, please reach out to your Recruiter.

For questions, please visit the Frequently Asked Questions about Interns  page. For further assistance, please email your Recruiter for paid interns and for unpaid interns.
