Important information for employers regarding Internships:  Employers seeking student interns should be able to provide the student guidance and mentorship in the chosen field.  For example, the intern’s supervisor should have marketing experience to adequately mentor a marketing intern.  Otherwise, you may consider hiring a recent graduate.  In addition, please note that if you are a for-profit employer interested in employing an intern, you are required to comply with the U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which governs minimum wage requirements in for-profit organizations.  For more important information regarding requirements for posting internships please refer to ASU career services website:  https://eoss.asu.edu/cs/Employers/intershipInfoEmp
