The Unpaid Internship Experts
At Intern Bridge, we strongly believe that all internships should offer hourly monetary compensation. This best practices recommendation is based on countless hours of proprietary research utilizing survey responses from over 100,000 students, discussing the issues with our nationwide network of career center and human resources practitioners, and taking into account critical business and economic principles.
While we consistently advocate for paid opportunities for students, unpaid internships have built a strong presence in the internship space. Recently, the Department of Labor began an awareness campaign to share information regarding potential legal issues with hosting unpaid interns. This Unpaid Internship Resource Center has been designed to share as much up-to-date information as possible.
Below, you will find numerous Intern Bridge products and services, in addition to important links to the Department of Labor website, media websites, and blogs (browsing the "comments" sections on each site yields interesting viewpoints.) Do you have a link that should be added or a question about unpaid internships? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
