Thank you for your interest in hiring an SVA student as an intern. An internship is an opportunity for our students to benefit from your professional guidance while giving them real workplace experience, and is an effective way for employers to determine if a student might be a good candidate for future opportunities with your organization. Each year, more than 300 SVA students successfully complete a paid or unpaid internship for credit and receive overwhelmingly positive reviews from their employers.
As a reminder, according to state and federal labor laws, the primary purpose of an unpaid internship is for the student to gain practical learning experience and not for the employer to benefit from the student’s labor. More information about intern compensation can be found in the Compensation and Department of Labor Standards section of this guide.
Please review the following information on how to participate in the SVA Internship for Credit Program.
