Recruit Annenberg Students and Alumni!

Whether you want to reach students for internships or our recent grads and experienced alumni for open positions, the USC Annenberg School should be your first stop.

Hiring Annenberg students for internships

Internship employers are expected to provide our students with personal training, ongoing guidance and support, and timely feedback/evaluations by the employer’s internship coordinator. The internship coordinator should also provide interns with a clear understanding of their job duties, responsibilities, and expected results. 

We realize that internships come in many different varieties, but our hope is that employers will always financially compensate interns for their work through an hourly rate of pay, weekly or monthly stipend, or provide tuition assistance in lieu of direct pay when possible. Parking and job-related incidentals should always be paid for by the employer, even if it is an unpaid position. 

If the employer is unable to pay interns, they must abide by the standard set forth under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), a federal law established by the U.S. Department of Labor. It is strongly suggested that unpaid interns work a maximum of 10-15 hours per week during the academic year, and less than 30 hours per week during the summer term. Ultimately, this decision is up to the employer and intern to establish before the internship begins.
