However, it is also important that you consider the following before you accept a position with an employer.
An internship combines what you are learning in the classroom in a real world setting. Through this experience, you should gain practical knowledge and build professional connections while receiving feedback from your supervisor. NACE provides additional detail in their internship guidelines.
Before you accept an offer it is important to get a realistic idea of what the position has to offer. At the interview stage, make sure you ask questions such as:
The Center for Student Success - Career Services believes that all students should receive compensation for their work. However, we acknowledge that some industries do not typically pay their interns, yet they still provide a meaningful learning experience.

If you are an international student, it is strongly recommended that you speak to a member at the
Office of International Student Services
regarding work authorization in the United States.
We are committed to protecting privacy rights of our students. Because of this commitment, we want to ensure that employers know that we warn students
about fraudulent job postings, and advise our students against providing their login information for their social media profiles to potential or existing
employers. Please note that transcripts are uploaded by students to Career Successlink provided by the Office of the Registrar. The information posted by
students in Career Successlink, however, is not validated by Center for Student Success - Careers.
The Center for Student Success - Careers adheres to the Principles for Professional Practice for Third-Party Recruiters. To be considered for acceptance, third-party recruiters will be requested to disclose information to the Center for Student Success - Careers that would enable the Center for Student Success - Careers to verify that it is recruiting for a bona fide job opportunity. If third-party recruiters are willing to provide information about their "bona fide" opportunities; the Center for Student Success - Careers is willing to work with them. If not, third-party recruiters will not be able to participate.
We will not post positions requiring students to pay special fees, purchase training materials, or participate in multi-level marketing as a preliminary condition of employment.
Employers are responsible for ensuring that their job or internship description is an accurate reflection of the duties of an employee.
Federal laws prohibit job discrimination based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, equal pay and disability. These guidelines are available from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In addition, The New York City Human Rights Law prohibits discrimination based on gender (including gender identity or expression and sexual harassment), sexual orientation, marital status, and partnership status. As part of The New School, the Center for Student Success - Careers also adheres to the University's Policy on Discrimination, which "is committed to a policy of equal opportunity in all its activities and programs, including employment and promotion. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, physical disabilities, veteran or marital status." The Center for Student Success - Careers will not post positions that do not adhere to any of these guidelines.
Employers will offer students a safe and appropriate work environment for students. A private home usually is not considered appropriate for internships.
Employers will not engage in sexual harassment as prohibited by the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
Employers should allow students at least 24 hours to decide on whether to accept a job or internship. Positions recruited through on-campus recruiting have other deadline rules.
Employers will pay wages to students as agreed upon and as stipulated by the New York State Department of Labor.
The Center for Student Success - Careers reserves the right to make these decisions at its discretion. For more information regarding ethical employment practices, see the Principles for Employment Professionals guidelines from NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers).

The Center for Student Success - Careers appreciates your support of New School students. We understand that in the challenging economy, many organizations rely on the support of unpaid interns. Before posting an unpaid internship, we ask that you consider the following guidelines from the Department of Labor.
Please note that in order to post an unpaid position, the internship must encompass all 6 components below:
The New School enrolls approximately 3,200 international students and scholars. This ranks with the highest percentage (25%) of international students enrolled at universities in the United States.
F-1 and J-1 international students and scholars who are temporarily studying in the US are an integral part of our university community and our city. Students from every discipline have a high level of motivation to apply their knowledge in a working environment. International students can bring fresh and innovative ideas to the workplace, while appreciating the opportunity to hone their craft. We hope that your decision to offer an internship or a job to an F-1 or J-1 international student will be a benefit to both your organization and the student.
F-1 international students who will obtain academic credit for an internship must be authorized for Curricular Practical Training (CPT). CPT is work off-campus in the student's field of study, which is considered to be 'an integral part of an established curriculum', and is authorized by International Student Services on a per-semester basis. J-1 students must be authorized for Academic Training (AT). AT is work off-campus in the student's field of study and can be authorized either pre-completion or post-completion by International Student Services and cannot exceed 18 months (36 months for Ph.D. students) per degree program. F-1 students who wish to take advantage of post-completion Optional Practical Training (OPT) apply with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which grant this 12-month benefit.
To understand more about employer rules pertaining to F-1 international students, please see our at Employment Opportunities Guide.
