As a recent graduate, I'm about to submit a couple applications working as an intern at an audio post facility and at a production company. Both do not specify length of time. I assume the quality of my work as an intern would ultimately define that. But I was wondering if three months was the average amount of time before one is considered for employment (if available). It's not for school credit and I'm sure there are labor laws that also limit or even prohibit how long I can work or what I can do without pay (but that's perhaps a long discussion for another time).
If no steady paying jobs come by, my goal is to snag one or both internships while commuting from my parents home. I'm just wondering how long these usually run.
