  • WHAT IS AN INTERNSHIP? “Any official or formal program to provide practical experience for beginners in an occupation or profession.”The modern concept of internships essentially springs from the medieval apprenticeship, in which skilledlaborers (often craftsmen) would teach a young person their trade and, in exchange, that person wouldagree to work for the teacher for a certain length of time.The main difference between an apprenticeship and an internship is that internships are moreexploratory. Youre not bound to work for your employer after the internship is over (although manyinterns do receive job offers). If you start early enough to do a few internships throughout college, youcan use the first ones to get a feel for what career youd like to pursue and the later ones to build yourexperience.Internships can be paid or unpaid — though, if they are unpaid, they’re usually subject to stringent laborguidelines. In the U.S., federal law mandates that unpaid interns must not benefit the companyeconomically or be used to displace the work done by paid employees. Some states have their ownregulations regarding interns. For example, in California, unpaid interns must receive college credit fortheir work.
