Looking for a student to complete an internship? 

Employers are encouraged to participate in Cabrini’s Internship Program, which allows students to earn 2 to 6 academic credits per semester based upon hours worked and the complexity of work assigned to the student.  The talents of Cabrini University students can assist organizations while simultaneously helping students grow and develop as individuals.

Cabrini students may earn credit for both paid and unpaid internships, but employer partners must abide by the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division test for unpaid internships:

  1. The internship, even though it includes actual operation of the facilities of the employer, is similar to training which would be given in an educational environment.
  2. The internship experience is for the benefit of the intern.
  3. The intern does not displace regular employees, but works under close supervision of existing staff.
  4. The employer that provides the training derives no immediate advantage from the activities of the intern; and on occasion its operations may actually be impeded.
  5. The intern is not necessarily entitled to a job at the conclusion of the internship.
  6. The employer and the intern understand that the intern is not entitled to wages for the time spent in the internship.

For additional information, please review the Department of Labor’s Fact Sheet #71-PDF.

Employers who use Cabrini services are expected to conform to applicable Equal Employment Opportunity laws and to follow NACE principles:
