Interns are expected to work 8 – 10 hours per week during the semester for 10 – 12 weeks (for a total of 80 – 120 hours). Exact start and end dates and hours are negotiable as long as those criteria are met.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all internships are currently remote; should Verité staff return to the office, that option will be discussed for interns.
Verité offers interns a modest stipend in the amount of $250 for the duration of the session to contribute to any cost of living and/or travel expenses. If your school also provides either funding or academic credits for intern work, Verité is happy to assist with the required paperwork. We also provide opportunities to interact with senior staff, mentoring, networking assistance, and references upon successful completion of the internship.
