An internship may be paid, unpaid or partially paid (in the form of a stipend).

Paid internships are most common in the medical, architecture, science, engineering, law, business (especially accounting and finance), technology and advertising fields. Internships in non-profit organizations such as charities and think tanks are often unpaid, volunteer positions. Internships may be part-time or full-time; they are typically part-time during the university year and full-time in the summer. They usually last 6-12 weeks, but can be shorter or longer depending on the company involved. The act of job shadowing may also constitute interning.
