A trainee, often a college student, who works for job experience in exchange for a minimal salary or hourly rate or for school credit. Internships provide a way for businesses to hire help at no or low cost, and for young people to get some experience under their belts in an industry in which they’re interested: a win/win. Note: If school credit is not available for the intern, you must pay them at least the state minimum wage. Interns cannot work for free. This is against the law.
