Internships for Non-Students?

Internships for Non-Students?

Owel brought this up to me in another thread

Have you tried applying for internship positions?

I’m not sure if they were aware that I’m not a student, but I’m just curious if they offer internships to non-students, and what I would need to do to go about getting one.

I would just learn what I can and apply for an actual job instead of an internship. You most likely know more than someone applying to an internship.

But to answer your question, no.

a google jobs search for “software programming intern” shows every listing asks for something like

Pursuing a degree (BS, MS, or PhD) in Computer Science or related technical field.

however a search for “software internship” turns up a few listings that do not ask for fulltime student status - though most ask for a recent degree

these are searches in NYC - you can check other areas

Not sure this is correct. At least in Canada, you can definitely get an internship without being a student and it is a good alternative to University. If they’re having trouble getting a job, an internship, especially a paid one, is a great place to start.

I’ve been wondering this too. Thank you for asking this question!

Oh, wow, thank you for letting us know - I never really considered Canada for an internship, but now I will!
