Internships - Employers

Internships provide students the opportunity to learn and gain practical experience in a hands-on environment. Individuals seeking internships are looking to gain new skills, add to their work experience or change fields.

What constitutes an internship?

An internship is generally for a set period of time, rather than indefinitely. An intern may or may not be working for pay. The focus of an internship is on the experience gained and skills learned, while performing real tasks and completing actual projects. Please see our Internship Guidelines for Employers.

Employers posting unpaid internship positions for SBCC students are urged to review the Department of Labor factsheet "Internships and the Fair Labor Standards Act."   This fact-sheet provides a good overview of the rights and responsibilities you have as an employer offering an internship. We reserve the right to refuse to post or to remove Internship postings that do not comply with the law. If you are posting an internship that you wish to make available to a student participating in a College internship program, you should contact the Career Center before posting the position.
