Criteria for an Experience to Be Defined as an Internship
To ensure that an experience—whether it is a traditional internship or one conducted remotely or virtually—is educational, and thus eligible to be considered a legitimate internship by the National Association of Colleges and Employers(NACE) definition, all the following criteria must be met:
-The experience must be an extension of the classroom: a learning experience that provides for applying the knowledge gained in the classroom. It must not be simply to advance the operations of the employer or be the work that a regular employee would routinely perform.
-The skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings.
-The experience has a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications.
-There are clearly defined learning objectives/goals related to the professional goals of the student’s academic coursework.
-There is supervision by a professional with expertise and educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.
-There is routine feedback by the experienced supervisor.
-There are resources, equipment, and facilities provided by the host employer that support learning objectives/goals.
If these criteria are followed, it is the opinion of NACE that the experience can be considered a legitimate internship.
