Commission-Based Positions Policy:
An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.
St. John’s University Career Services strongly encourages paid internships as compensation often attracts a larger, more diverse and more qualified pool of applicants.
If you are a for-profit organization recruiting for an unpaid internship, it is important that the position comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws, including but not limited to the Fair Labor Standards Act or “FLSA”.
Should you have further questions concerning the legality of your unpaid internship positions, it is encouraged that you consult with legal counsel to ensure compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws.
Academic Credit Internships
Academic Credit internships are done under the guidance and supervision of an appointed faculty member assigned within each particular major. Academic departments have specific guidelines and requirements that vary by major. The designated faculty member for the major determines if the internship opportunity meets the department's requirements in regard to the terms and conditions revolving around hours required to work, compensation, academic based assignments and grading system. The employer will work with the Academic Department in regard to documentation and necessary paperwork required.
Hiring Deadlines for Academic Credit Internships:
Academic Credit Internships must fit within one of our academic semesters: Fall (September-December) Spring (January-May), Summer (May-August)
