Are You Looking for Interns? Can You Answer a Few Questions, Please?

I posted this in the facebook group but thought of putting it here so that it can reach a wider audience. Can you tell us a bit about your internship program(s)? Specifically:

  1. How many interns do you typically take in your location? How frequently do you look for interns (quarterly, yearly, all the time etc.)
  2. How can students qualify for internships? What prior knowledge or practical experience do you require?
  3. Do you offer unpaid internships (lots of students I talked to want to just get the work experience and willing to work without pay for a few months, initially)
  4. Do you take part time internships? For example, many students would like to work a few hours a week at their convenience.
  5. Do you allow interns to telecommute? (work from their home mostly but come to the location a couple of times a week)
  6. Do you allow students who graduated but looking for jobs as interns?
  7. What kind of work do interns get in your company?

Please leave your answers in the comments section. You can also point us to a page you have about internships (if you do).  Please answer as many of these questions as possible.
