Although interns are typically college or university students, they can also be high school students or post-graduate adults.
Generally, an internship works as an exchange of services for experience between the student and his or her employer. They can also use an internship to determine if they have an interest in a particular career, create a network of contacts, or gain school credit. Some interns also find permanent, paid employment with the companies in which they interned. Thus, employers also benefit as experienced interns need little or no training when they begin full-time regular employment.
The Bath Preservation Trust does occasionally offer unpaid internships. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with an up-to-date CV if you would like to find out more.
