Do I have to pay my intern?

Students pay tuition for academic internships. Internship & Career Programs encourages employers to consider the benefits of hosting an intern and the cost the intern incurs for participating in an internship.   If you cannot pay an hourly wage for a Queens intern, consider offering another form of compensation, such as a stipend or travel reimbursement.

When can my intern begin work?

Supervisors will receive an email when the Internship Contract has been approved. Students may begin work when approval is received.  Students may not begin the internship without approval.

My company requires a letter confirming that the student will receive academic credit for the internship.  Where can I get this letter?

The Internship & Career Programs office can provide a letter to you confirming academic credit depending on the student in question’s eligibility.  Please contact the office:  careerprograms@queens.edu,704.337.2337.

What is the Internship Contract?

The Internship Contract is an agreement between the student, employer and university that clarifies Learning Objectives, start/end dates and hours, scope of the internship and key contact information.

What are Learning Objectives?

A Learning Objective is a statement describing what a student is expected and hopes to learn from the internship experience.  The Learning Objective may also provide a detailed and measurable description of new skills that the student will obtain during their internship. The objective is designed to help students understand how to make practical use of their work experience.

Are there employer compliance guidelines?

Queens expects that internship sites will provide a safe workplace, adequate supervision, training and follow all federal, state and relevant professional association requirements including the regulations outlined in the Fair Labor Standards Act and EEOC guidelines.  Queens additionally uses NACE (National Association of College and Employers) criteria to assess the legitimacy and value of proposed internship experiences.

Who do I contact if I have a question or problem during the internship?

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Queens Internship & Career Programs office:  careerprograms@queens.edu, 704.337.2337.
