FAS Internship Panel Tonight!

4 Nov

unnamed (31)

Hey Everyone,

If searching for internships makes you resemble a Munch painting, then FAS has your back. We will be hosting our annual Internship Panel next Wednesday, November 4th at 6:30pm in Silver 301. A series of students will speak about their current internships, how they got them, and their past experiences interning in New York. Some of the internships discussed will include museums, galleries, non-profit organizations, and auction houses. Snacks and refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!

    Please keep in mind that it is illegal to work for a for-profit company unless you are paid minimum wage. That does not mean what some companies call “a stipend.” A stipend is less than minimum wage. Protect yourself. Keep in mind that you are unlikely to get a recommendation from a firm that hires you illegally. This applies to auction houses, fashion companies, and commercial art galleries.
    Students who do not have USA work permits (which means most foreign students) are not allowed to work for pay at any American entity. Students should not jeopardize their future ability to return to the USA by doing anything illegal.
    INTERN FOR A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION such as a museum, social agency, a library, or a charity. These are all legal. They will probably write letters of recommendation for you, if you ask right at the end of your work (so that they will remember you clearly; don’t wait until much later). Prof. Krinsky
