How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Hi! Securing an internship as a high school student can be difficult even for students that are US citizens. Generally, internship programs cater to college students, who typically have more expertise and are often see as more capable than high school students.
That said, a great place to look as a high school student is at unpaid internships or volunteer work. Colleges students are more likely to look for paid employment, which leaves more unpaid opportunities open for high school students.
For international students, work experience outside of the US is just as valuable on a college application as work experience in the US—colleges want to see students that are trying to further develop their interests, and internships are a great way to do this, regardless of if the internship takes place in the United States.
