The purpose of an internship is to gain the type of experience that demonstrates preparation for a particular field.
Two main criteria must typically be met to qualify a position as an internship:
For example, if an accounting office has a position that involves nothing more than answering the phone, making copies, filing and running errands, it does not qualify as an internship. But if students are also provided projects that involve accounting, reconciling, financial reporting or processing-related paperwork, then it becomes a learning experience related to their field, and would qualify as an internship.
