Types of Internships
Internships for Credit: Some internships can offer course credit. Check with your college or university for details and be sure your employer is willing to abide by the guidelines provided by your institution to receive course credit.
Paid and Unpaid Internships: Some internships offer an hourly pay or stipend to compensate for your time at their company. If your internship is unpaid, inquire if there is any additional costs the company can cover, like public transportation and lunches.
