I am completely disgusted that Klingbeil is asking for unpaid work disguised as an "intern".

I have friends working in the fashion/retail industry in NYC and this kind of internship is pretty common.  My co-worker's son is trying to break into design and has worked a series of unpaid internships with major fashion houses just for the opportunity to make contacts within the industry and to have high-end names to put on his resume.  A couple times he's complained that he was nothing more than a stockboy, moving boxes in the back room.  Internships aren't particularly glamourous jobs and no one expects them to be.  But it's one way to get a foot in the door.  And there's no telling what you can learn by keeping your eyes open and doing what you're told.

With Klingbeil selling street shoes now as well as skates, it's not surprising that they're going that route, especially since they're located in NYC's fashion district now.

ETA:  Klingbeil's most recent post on Facebook says that they're looking for a PAID intern/employee now.

Unpaid internships are illegal in Canada with some exception so I am distressed at the trend free resume building that I see in the USA.  The exceptions are if they are done while the person is currently a student, an outline of what they will learn, and feedback is provided to the college or university and the job can't be one that the business would otherwise hire for.  Bell Canada (our big telco) was in hot water over this recently, having a entire department being nothing but interns who thought that interning would lead to a job but really they only got to interact with other interns. The really good universities find paid intern positions for their students btw, doing a degree on a co-op basis with paid work semesters means less student loan burden although it takes five years, not four to graduate.  Also, most co-op students land a job based on their work terms, or if they didn't get a good fit, can try a different place next work term.   

Skate Canada advertised for an unpaid intern this spring.  They were looking for a university student, in new media, and it was a bit dodgy as to whether the job was truly a learning intern because the brief read more like "fix our systems please", however since it was limited to current enrolled students it was legal.

Nice to see that Klingbeil is now going to pay someone.

Since Klingbeil is in NYC, the Canadian laws don't really apply.

I grew up and went to college in NYC.  My college used to have an internship recruiting team that found paid internships for their students.  They had an in-house application and interview process to match up interns and companies.  A lot of Manhattan companies would create multiple summer internship positions to find their next full-time recruits after graduation.

Back in the day, unpaid internships were accepted by career-changers and people who had no experience or training whatsoever.   More often than not, the same ad would appear in the Wall Street Journal or NY Times week after week because people would apply for paid jobs first.  (To be honest, I never looked at the fashion trade ads; I was interested in corporations and conglomerates.)  I remember seeing many, many unpaid internships at charities like the Legal Aid Society, Fresh Air Fund, YMCA/YMHA/JCC and other non-profits.

My first internship was for a pharmaceutical firm.  They hired 6 of us to work the summer in their IT department.  Most of the interns did COBOL programming, but two of us (incl. myself) were selected to work in the Information Center.  To me, that job had the better description: we would be using high-level programming tools and interacting with other departments.  I loved it, as did my friend Rich, but we learned early on to NOT ask V (mgr) for work.  V would give us magazine articles to photocopy and collate.  B (asst mgr) would map out a real project that required programming, reporting and analysis.  He was patient and explained things well; a much-better experience.  The company kept us on for almost two years, with Rich and I splitting the hours during the school year.  We were able to network with other companies' IC's to find out what they did differently/better/worse.  We also received independent-study credits toward our degree by writing a white paper together on effective Info Centers.  (Today, they'd call this "best practices.)

There's nothing to interpret: the Klingbeil listing clearly says "office assistant," and the job responsibilities list clerical tasks.  They're not looking for a fitter or boot maker.

The law says an internship has to be training, and has to be  for the intern's benefit.

Maybe someone could drop the dime on Klingbeil, what they're doing is slave labor.

If you can't tell, I have a very very low opinion of internships.
Yes I'm in with the 90's. I have a skating blog. http://icedoesntcare.blogspot.com/

No one would work for Klingbeil as an unpaid office assistant - there would be no benefit. So I assume they get some training. Anyway, we are all just speculating - you would have to talk to Klingbeil to find out what it was all about.

Another example of an unpaid internship, by another name, closer to home to some of you: Quite a few skating rinks start out their instructors (who they often train in the art of teaching) as unpaid volunteers who assist the paid instructors.

(One of my rinks keeps them that way, and uses them as primary instructors [like me]. Programs that use paid instructors can be more selective about who teaches, so they usually do a better job - but many of the kids in this rink's program wouldn't have the opportunity if they had to pay.)

Another example of an unpaid internship that I think I already mentioned, but I will explain more fully to show how useful an unpaid internship can be to the student: Most U.S. congress people, as well as the president are strongly dependent on unpaid political interns. They do a lot of the grunt work, like reading proposed new laws; sometimes they help write the new laws, and they do a lot of the research. You talk to the lobbyists, and you often tell the congressmen and women what political positions they should hold. In that sense, it is one of the most influential positions in American (U.S.) politics. You make contacts with very influential people, and you learn the ins and outs of how the U.S. political system works. It is supposed to be very useful for future political careers, and to activists who wish to effect future political events. (BTW, Monica Lewinski was an unpaid White House political intern, but I hope she wasn't typical.)

Another example of an unpaid internship, that has become almost universal in the U.S.: Most U.S., high school (grades 10-12, ages about 16-19) students are required by law to provide "community service". They can choose where they do their service (e.g., the examples I gave above), but they don't have a choice about doing it. Other unpaid internships don't trouble me, because the student has that choice. But school-required community service really is slave labor, and I feel very strongly that it is wrong to have such a requirement.

Anyway, isn't this whole sub-thread a bit off topic? I assume the thread was intended to help skaters find paid jobs, not to discuss whether or not a specific unpaid internship is ethical.

I know this is an old thread, but I came across a listing for jobs that include some ice-related opportunities, through "Rink Management Services", possibly the biggest company to run ice rinks in the U.S.A.

  http://rinkmanagement.hrmdirect.com/employment/job-openings.php

that might interest some of you.

They don't have very high nominal minimum qualifications (e.g., to be a LTS instructor, they require USFSA freestyle 1 or "equivalent" test level; more typical requirements are one or two senior level gold tests), but it is also possible that they get so many applicants that you actually need higher qualifications.
