I am currently a student living in Canada. During my summers, I have the opportunity to apply for summer internships. In my home province, it is illegal to to offer unpaid internships, but after some research I found this is not the case everywhere. I want to get an internship so I get experience under my belt, but going a summer without paid work is nonnegotiable on my budget, unfortunately.
Now that I'm considering applying in other cities (particularly in the States), I want to be transparent with possible interviewers and let them know I'm not interested in unpaid work, but in the scenario where the internship IS paid and simply not stated in the job description I don't want to give the impression I'm "only in it for the money".
What is the standard way of asking about this during the application process?
