An externship sometimes called "job shadowing” is a very short term (usually 1 – 3 days), unpaid work experience, usually sponsored by the organization or the school program that you are in. It is usually a “for credit” position, which means you can earn academic credit from participating in the externship. University staff selects and assigns students to externships. It is a way for the student to get the “feel” for a specific career field.
An internship is longer term (from several weeks to a year), and may involve pay or academic credit. Interns work within an organization to support the work function. Employers and the sponsoring organizations select and hire interns

By the way, the company I work for offers internship program. We would go to the University and interview the candidates. The program is a year and the intern can be hired as an employee after the program depending on his/her work performance and if there is a position available.Source(s): Myself.
