Quick Answer: Do Internships Count As Employment History?

Many internships are paid positions while others are not.

Non-paid internships offer valuable work experience that helps enhance a resume.

Whether paid or not, the work is still a form of employment.

Potential employers will acknowledge your work as such.

Are internships part of employment history?

The short answer is yes, internships count as professional experience and should be added to your resume, especially when you’ve recently graduated from college and are putting together your entry-level resume after graduation. It doesn’t matter if the internship you performed was paid, unpaid, or for college credits.

Does work experience count as employment history?

Job seekers typically include work history in the “Experience” or “Related Employment” section of a resume. You do not need to (and should not) include every work experience in your “Experience” section. Focus on jobs, internships, and even volunteer work that is related to the job at hand.
