Is this an actual internship?
Long time WSO lurker here, but never really had any questions I couldn't find an answer to from prior posts. However, I couldn't find anything like this.
I am a sophomore who pursued an internship with a major energy company in their finance department, but did not get it. However, I was able to reach out to and convince a minor executive at the firm to allow me to work for him as an intern (completely unpaid), where I have been going to his office twice a week.
He couldn't get it HR approved or anything so there really is no record of me working there. However, he said that if my future employer were to call him, he would vouch for me that I did work there for him. However, there are other interns at this firm who are "official" and getting paid, who have records in the HR system.
Does anyone know if I can even put this on my resume? Thanks guys.
