    I dont know man, just seems like you will be the only one to profit. At least offer to pay the transportation costs or something. I would not expect someone to come in and perform efficiently or long term with out some form of reward.

    I was under the impression that people interned for a application boost and to impress future employers. So that would mean an intern would be a someone novice worker to the field. I am probably just thinking to far into this but that is how i view it.

    Exactly. That's what I think too. Everyone wants to be recognized.

    Generally speaking, the whole purpose of an internship is to pass your knowledge down to someone trying to get into the same business as you are. Internships, by nature, are typically not a paid job, but they generally roll over college level hours/recognition for most schools(at least here in the US).

    SOME internships offer stipends at the end of the apprenticeship, but not all. It's really more a building block for your career and getting a foot in the door/getting contacts/learning from a professional in whatever field it is you're pursuing.

    For instance, I have a friend who went recently graduated from The University of Georgia, going to school for journalism. She interned at a magazine publisher here in Atlanta during the day(over the summer), and worked her normal job at night. At the end of her internship, she was given a $3000 stipend for the 3 months she interned, and was given 2 college hours in her course work. After she graduated, she landed a job with the publisher.

    Internships, if you can afford living/have a job that doesn't interfere with the hours, really is a great way to go. It might not feel rewarding since you don't get paid, but the knowledge is what you're doing it for anyway. They're certainly not for everyone, but if money isn't an object for you, it's worth giving a try.

    I would of loved something like this when i was in uni. I know loads of people in my class travelled down to London from Manchester just to do apprenticeships with small places and nobody's. I have tweeted and posted it on my wall for the people i know that are still in uni doing design or illustration, hope it helps.

    said it better than i could! i interned for 4 months or so in my last year of uni, working for one of the fatcat records designers, i didnt get $3000 at the end though, haha! im not sure id be working in the same way i do now if i hadnt. And yes, a lot of universitys actually like it when their students are doing stuff like this outside of University/college, thats mainly who this is for.

    In that case you should contact local universities and try working out something with them.
