Criteria for an Experience to be Defined as an Internship

To ensure that an experience-whether it is a traditional internship or one conducted remotely or virtually-is educational, and thus eligible to be considered a legitimate internship by the NACE definition, all the following criteria must be met:

  1. The experience must be an extension of the classroom: a learning experience that provides for applying the knowledge gained in the classroom. It must not be simply to advance the operations of the employer or be the work that a regular employee would routinely perform.
  2. The skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings.
  3. The experience has a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications.
  4. There are clearly defined learning objectives/goals related to the professional goals of the student's academic coursework.
  5. There is supervision by a professional with expertise and educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.
  6. There is routine feedback by the experienced supervisor.
  7. There are resources, equipment, and facilities provided by the host employer that support learning objectives/goals.

If these criteria are followed, it is the opinion of NACE that the experience can be considered a legitimate internship. If your unpaid internship meets the 7 criteria listed above, please feel free to post your position in Handshake, our online recruiting system.

Criteria for Determining if Position can be Unpaid Internship/Unpaid Volunteer

The Department of Labor and Hour Division has established a six factor test for determining whether work is legitimately volunteer training/unpaid internship (for which no pay or work authorization is required) or whether it is employment (for which pay and work authorization is required). If all six of the following criteria apply, the trainees are not employees within the meaning of the Fair Labor Standards Act, and are properly classified as unpaid volunteers/unpaid interns. For more information click here:

  1. The internship, even though it includes actual operation of the employer's facilities, is similar to training that would be given in a vocational school
  2. The internship experience is for the benefit of the student.
  3. The intern does not displace regular employees, but works under the close observation of a regular employee.
  4. The employer provides the training and derives no immediate advantage from the activities of the intern. Occasionally, the operations may actually be impeded.
  5. The intern is not necessarily entitled to a job at the conclusion of the internship.
  6. The employer and the intern understand that the intern is not entitled to wages for the time in the internship.
