Default Possible Internship

I got a call yesterday from vocational rehabilitation about a possible internship in a not-for-profit, hospital-affiliated company in their IT department. They will contact me with the dates when they get it so they can set up a meeting. I sent them my resume and playing the waiting game for right now. I really do hope I get it since I want to work on the computer more than anything.

Write your questions down! Then add to the list and edit and condense them into discrete areas, and take them with you!

I had a meeting with a vocational rehabilitation counselor on Monday to discuss my resume and talk about possible internship questions. I did pretty good with everything overall. I'm still nervous but I'm sure I will be fine. Got another question but I'm pretty sure it varies from company to company: Do interns basically receive health benefits or any other kind of benefits? I looked at the company website and it said Company name offers comprehensive and competitive benefits. Full benefits are available to full-time and part-time employees. Benefited per visit (BPV) and PRN employees are eligible for benefits based on eligibility criteria. I'm not even sure what that even mean.

You'll have to ask their HR department to decipher your actual employment status and eligibility.

If they ask me when can I start, what should I tell them? I have to meet with my advisor Monday to plan my classes for next semester and I have a lot of medical appointments coming up that are in advance and sometimes, they are hard to reschedule. I'm under my stepfather's insurance and it will expire in December since I will be 26 so I would need to go to my appointments before it expires then since I have health problems and disabilities.
