Spotlight for Recruiting Professionals
NACE’s 2016 Internship and Co-op Survey found that among employers that offer some manner of relocation assistance to their interns, 61.4 percent offer a housing stipend.
Employer members of NACE’s Community noted these methods of helping interns with temporary lodging:
- No stipend offered, but interns are given resources to find housing on their own and connect with other interns to find roommates.
- Contract with local colleges/universities to house interns in the dorms.
- Offer full housing with the employer paying $500 to $900 per month.
- Identify safe locations to rent (but offer no stipend).
- Interns submit a relocation form and rent is added to their paycheck.
- Housing is built into total compensation.
- Resources to find housing are provided and interns are connected by e-mail to find roommates.
- Provide $35 per day, included in biweekly paychecks.
- Facebook page maintained for interns to connect about shared housing.
- Ask employees if they have a room to rent to interns.
