General Internship Information

·       Internships at UWGLV are available in most of our business areas year round.  We are highly flexible with start and end dates for internships.

·       Open to individuals of any age over 14, in a formal educational program or not, who demonstrate they are developing new professional skills and would benefit from the opportunity to work and learn in our organization.

·       An intern is expected to get as much from the work experience at UWGLV as UWGLV gets from the intern.  The supervisor of an intern anticipates a “break-even” exchange of time invested in mentoring the intern versus work product contributed to the organization.

·       It is not the purpose or intention of this program to allow prospective employees to “work for free” to demonstrate their skill set or prove their suitability for employment. Candidates applying for stipend internships for this purpose will not be accepted.

·       Not financially compensated for their time or work.

·       May serve as an intern for no more than 1 year or no more than 950 hours.
