Re: [newtech-1] [JOB] Product Intern Wanted

Regarding "internship credit," everyone on this thread should read this recent New York Times article:
http://mobile.nytimes.com/2013/02/03/education/edlife/internships-for-credit-merited-or-not.xml

Key excerpt;
In 2010,the Department of Labor became so concerned about exploitation of interns that it clarified the rules for using them without compensation. "The more an internship program is structured around a classroom or academic experience," the department said,"the more likely the internship will be viewed as an extension of the individual's educational experience (this often occurs where a college or university exercises oversight over the internship program and provides educational credit)." There were other criteria as well: unpaid internships are illegal if the student is doing work that has "immediate advantage" for the business.

I don't know about "shady", but unpaid internships (with or without credit) have been under legal scrutiny for a while: http://www.newyorklawjournal.com/PubArticleNY.jsp?id=1202583208824&Unpaid_Internships_Under_Legal_Scrutiny&slreturn=20130219200232

Yes, Yasser, that's exactly what internships are.  Nothing shady about it, it's VERY valuable experience for college students and they receive credit.

Interns will get college credit. It's only open to current students.

Dan, I'd imagine that the world's leading B2B, online, fashion marketplace launched in 2000 with patented technology could afford to pay some interns. Is this an unpaid internship?

If so, it really smells like you're just trying to get some poor college kids to do some free QA.
