Question: What Types of Internships are Available?
Answer: Internships may be paid or unpaid, for credit or not-for-credit, and are available in a wide variety of fields from both the private and non profit sectors of the job market. Internships are available locally, nationally, and internationally. Many internships offer a monetary award such as a stipend, salary, bonus, or money to cover transportation and/or food costs; check out The Internship Bible for additional perks such as concert tickets, CD's, and admission into gala events. Some internships offer housing or inexpensive housing may be offered at a local college for the summer. Also, be sure to check out the various internship sites on the web.
