Please share this article


Internships are an excellent opportunity to gain some work experience, however, you may be wondering if you get any financial compensation. Here is everything you need to know about an internship.


Not all internships are paid. Depending on the position and the company you are applying to complete your internship at, interns may or may not be paid.

So, Do You Get Paid During An Internship?

Unfortunately, there are also unpaid internships so it is up to you to carefully read the job description and if no stipend or salary is mentioned, contact the company directly to find out.

If you're looking for a paid internship, there are several resources you can use to find one. For example, you can search on sites like Linkedin and The Careers Portal.

The best way to find a paid internship is to take advantage of as many online resources as possible. 

It's always better to get paid for your work, but an internship is a great way to get the experience you need to land a job in your field.

Keep your eyes open for companies that offer paid internships, and remember that an unpaid internship can still be worth it if it's providing you with what you need such as valuable skills and extensive knowledge.
