Haley Mead's curator insight, December 13, 2013 4:59 PM

This is another instance where the work done by a volunteer or an intern would essentially be the same work. Be sure to read the fine print to ensure that the internship opportunity you are looking for is in fact an internship, not another volunteer opportunity. Non-profit internships are difficult to obtain in this way because volunteering and working as an intern for a nonprofit can offer the same work.
