3. Internships

One great way to get your foot in the door of your chosen career is to have done an internship in the field of your studies, and may even get you credit toward your degree. However, internships in many fields not related to your major may still be proudly added to your resume. Internships can be paid or unpaid. According to the U.S.

Fair Labor Standards Act, internships can only be unpaid if the training is similar to training students would receive in a classroom, the intern experience is for the benefit of the intern, the intern does not displace regular employees, the employer gets no immediate advantage from employing the intern, the intern isn’t guaranteed a job at the end of the internship, and both intern and employer understand that the internship will be unpaid.
