Internship?

Can you get paid as an intern? Can you work anywhere as an intern as long as they take you in? What is an internship? Cause i want to work in a restaurant and maybe get paid if they do. How do i do that though? Do i just go in the restaurant that i want and ask the manager if i can work as an internship?

Update:

I want to learn how to run a restaurant thats why. So i don't know how to do that

Update 2:

who should i go to in order for them to hire me as internship to learn about running a business and what it takes to get to that position

    There are paid internships as well as unpaid internships. If you want to set up an internship, you need to go through your school. They will have all of the information you need, and can tell you which internships are paid and which are not.

    Good luck to you!

    You should get paid as an intern. Unpaid internships are old fashioned and in my opinion a rip off for employees. I have an "internship" at NASA that pays more than anything all of my non-intern working friends make.

    If you're willing to learn, you will probably be a good employee and deserve to get paid. If you don't care about money, take the lowest job you can get hired for and work your way up learning the company from the ground up. Ask the manager for a job, if he isn't willing to give you a job at a restaurant, chances are he wouldn't give you an unpaid internship either.

    Depends on what position in the restaurant you want. If you want to work in the kitchen approach the chef and tell him you would like to be a stagiere (volunteer) for a while and then possibly move on to Part-Time help if he needs the work. If you want to work in Management, then approach the manager and ask to shadow him/her for a week or so. Either way, be direct, show your interest in working for them. Eat there first! . . .and just try. You will be surprised by how much you can get done just by showing up! And, yes you can and should get paid for working. If you want to intern for school and get credit, fine. But don't volunteer forever. I worked in a kitchen and made $12 an hour with zero professional experience, so I'm sure you can do it too.

    Cheers,

    You may be better off getting a job as a waiter. It is always best to start at the bottom and work your way up so you will know what everyone really does when you have your own restaurant. Plus, after working as a waiter for awhile, you will get to know the boss and will be in a better position to ask to learn about the business. You will most likely have to work a few hours before or after your waiter job, but the experience will be very rewarding.

    No man, you are an intern in a work place where you plan to gain experience because you are interested in what they do there, like for example if you are a business major you should apply to a business company. I guess that if you want to be a chef you should definetively go an ask for an internship there.

    yes... it is a job and also a learning experience. u should intern at lplaces like where ur guna work later. like if u want to become a docotr and ur in med school now, then mayb an internship being an assistant/nurse can help...

    also... why would u want to work as an intern at a restuarant? as a manager or a chef?? i think they would only allow professional chefs to cook for the people becus they cook good...

    just ask. i dont think places like mcdonalds and restuarants or movie thatres offer internships...

    just ask,

    im an intern for an architectural firm. the main point of an internship is to watch the professional(s) and learn from them. learn what the industry is about, watch how they work... youre learning from them in exchange for you doing small duties, like getting coffe or a few oddjobs. at my internship i do alot of random stuff, observe the architect, take notes for him during meetings, remind him to make some calls, send some emails, i sit in on meetings.. and do anything else he needs me to do. i get paid but not much. you shoudl not expect pay, or a decent pay if you get one..Internships are not real jobs, dont expect to work hard either, and dont work too hard, cuz its not job, its an educational expericance. if you want to learn abuot managing a resteraunt, do not be a waiter. speak to the owner and ask if hes interested in an intern. youd probably be shadowing the owner/manager, do some oddjobs like ordering supplies and what not, but make sure you sit in on the meetings and learn about how the industry works.

    I was not paid as a Social Worker intern at a nursing home, even when the Director quit and I was running the Department myself.

    You're way too nice to work for the Yamster. I honestly can't picture you hitting the big red Account Delete button on someone.
