For universities, internships can provide new opportunities to assess whether or not their program prepares students for their future job. Universities can also design potential employment opportunities for their students. In addition, internships provide students with valuable learning experiences in their chosen fields. Significant contributions to the development of internship programs come from at least two social areas: 1. the involvement of bodies with a role in the promotion of youth policies (in the sector of higher-level human resource training) and, 2. the involvement of public authorities in the legislative regulation of internships in order to ensure social security, but also to distinguish them from apprenticeships, contract work.This article aims, on the one hand, identifying the benefits of internships for students, universities and organizations, and, on the other hand, presentation of the European actions (of the European Union Commission) and of the Romanian legislative context, which gave the internship a clear position in the specific relations of human resources.
