Enhance your qualified candidate pool:
Post employment, internship and fellowship opportunities
Our USC Price Jobs, Internships and Fellowships database lists full and part time positions, internships and fellowships in government agencies, nonprofits, health care organizations, urban planning agencies, international programs, and private companies with a public sector focus. These postings are available to over 1,400 USC Price students and more than 16,000 USC Price alumni.

Agreement: I understand there are Federal and State laws, rules, regulations, guidelines and standards which determine whether interns should be paid at least the minimum wage and overtime, including, but not limited to, the Fair Labor Standards Act, for the services that they provide to “for-profit” private sector employers. In addition, I understand that my organization is solely responsible for complying with all applicable law.

By posting an unpaid internship on PriceNet on behalf of my organization, I acknowledge that I reviewed all applicable Federal and State laws, rules, regulations, standards and guidelines that apply to the State in which the unpaid internship will be based and in the State in which the organization is domiciled, and warrant that the organization’s unpaid internship meets all applicable requirements and standards.
