Please write “Internship” in the subject line.
PLEASE NOTE: According to the Department of Labor, an unpaid internship must meet all these criteria:
- The internship is similar to training which would be given in an educational environment
- It’s for the benefit of the intern
- The intern doesn’t displace paid employees
- The employer doesn’t benefit from work the intern is doing, “and on occasion, its operations may actually be impeded.”
- The intern isn’t promised a job at the end (unpaid “tryouts” aren’t allowed)
- Both the intern and their boss understand it's an unpaid position
We are a very small company and it seems unlawful to have an unpaid intern based on the ABOVE reasons. If you feel you still want an unpaid internship we will accept your inquiry.
