* ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'': April started off as a very snarky and aloof version of this, until she's hired as a full time and paid employee for the department, specifically as Ron's assistant.

* The "disposable redshirt" version is used in ''[[Series/TheLibrarians2014 The Librarians]]'' "And the Horns of a Dilemma," in which the main cast investigate the mysterious disappearances of eight people who turn out to have been interns for the same company, Golden Ax Foods. [[spoiler:Golden Ax has recreated the Minoan Labyrinth via magic, sacrificing interns to the Minotaur to ensure the prosperity of their company.]]

* Sandy in ''Radio/AbsolutePower'', who has a better grasp of the real world than her employers, and wishes they'd do a better job in completing the work experience paperwork for her NVQ certificate. She later becomes a paid employee, but leaves the company in Season 3 and is replaced by Clive, who's just an idiot.

Variant form of NaiveNewcomer. The young guy (often the PluckyComicRelief) who is still new to the whole place. He's often brilliant, almost always irreverent, and almost always "not ready for prime time" (i.e. [[VomitingCop throwing up]] the first time he sees a serious accident, etc). Commonly treated as a ButtMonkey.

ButtMonkey, especially if they're an ''unpaid'' intern, in which case whatever happens to them will be dismissed as "being paid in experience".

* ''WebVideo/AcquisitionsIncorporated'' starred three interns to the eponymous company: ThePaladin Aoefel in seasons two through six, the LoveableRogue Viari from season seven onward, and the ForestRanger Morgane in season eight. Their job is usually to serve as the StraightMan for the utterly insane full-time employee trio.

* ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'' has several interns during the course of the show. All of them--with the possible exception of [[MauveShirt Dana]]--are either [[RedShirt killed or otherwise never heard from again]], usually within a single episode.

** When Maureen stops blinking in-and-out of reality she calls Cecil out on his treatment of the interns, and the corresponding mortality rate, then goes back to working for him. Though she quits after surviving a couple more near death experiences.

* Tia from ''VideoGame/PotionMaker'' was sent to work in Pio's store by the kingdom's potion academy in the palace. Probably to teach her humility, though she suggests it's because she's too skilled to be a mere student.
