Internship Postings

  • If your organization is a for-profit business, compensation is expected and virtually mandated by federal regulations.  Read FLSA Fact Sheet #71 from the U.S. Dept. of Labor.

  • If your organization is unable to offer a regular wage, consider helping the student with a stipend or internship-related expenses such as parking fees, mileage, meals, etc.

  • Unpaid student employment will not violate the U.S. Department of Labor's Fair Labor Standards Act if it is a training program which meets criteria found in the FLSA Fact Sheet #71 from the U.S. Dept. of Labor.
  • Many employers ask how much they should pay students.  The wage range for 2015-2016 was $7.25-$25.00 per hour.  Median wage rate is $10.00 per hour.  Check out this infographic - The Case for Paying Interns
