What is an internship?

An internship in The United States means working with a company in a professional environment. This can include assisting a department manager, but also having your own responsibilities. If you happen to have school assignments or projects that you wish to include in your internship, the company may give you time to work on it, but that is not guaranteed. In some cases, assignments must be done on your own time. Internships run from 3-12 months. Before you begin your internship, we provide a full training plan that will outline the tasks of your internship. It is very important that you clearly state the desires you have for your internship during the interview so we know exactly what you are looking for. Stage-USA offers mainly paid internships.
