We pay all our interns.  If you know any local students needing internships please send them my way.  I can hire several every year.  Must have GPA 3.0 or above.  Thanks!

Specifically, http://connecttohr.com/hiring-unpaid-interns-in-california/ has more information on the topic. And I actually echo Lynn's stance; I think it's unrealistic and unfair to ask an intern (in most any capacity) to work for free.

Best,

OK, I feel very strongly that interns for companies who use their work to produce revenues and benefit from those revenues should pay those interns.  They bring something to the table too: experience, enthusiasm, questions; asking them to work for free is taking advantage of them.

 

Also, I don't think your workers' compensation insurance policy will allow unpaid interns on the premises.  You might check that out.

 

My 2¢, FWIW.

 

Stridently yours,

Lynn

Hi,

After working with me for several months, my first UX intern landed a
job as an IA at Digitas. I'm now looking for my second student. The
position is unpaid. However, if you're passionate about UX and want to
work alongside a seasoned professional, I can share with you what I've
learned over the past 15 years designing web sites and applications.
If interested, here's what you need to do:

1) Passion for UX
2) Able to come into office in Santa Monica at least 3 days/week
3) Some experience/Education (Tell me what you've done or better yet,
point me to some work or projects online
4) Tell me why you want to be my UX intern

Best,
