Will my internship be paid?

In the USA, the majority of internships are unpaid. When an employer pays a salary (or any kind of remuneration), the focus is not on the opportunity but on what the employee can do for the employer. When internships are unpaid, they are focused on the training and learning, and allows you to get the experience you need for a future career.
