Internship Best Practices

An internship can be a great way for students to develop professional skills while simultaneously contributing value to your organization. If you have never had an intern before and are exploring the paid/not-paid, credit/no-credit issues, see the NACE and Department of Labor documents on the bottom of this page. If you have questions about internships, please call 919-962-6507 and ask to speak to one of our employer relations consultants, or email

University Career Services offers you easy access to UNC-Chapel Hill student interns. Internships can be:

  • Any time of the year (summer, fall, spring semesters)
  • Any length of time (a month to a year)
  • Full-time or part-time
  • Paid or non-paid
  • For credit or non-credit
