CHICAGO ( MainStreet) -- Summer is intern season in corporate America, when college students descend upon offices across the country in the hopes of getting resume-worthy work experience -- and ideally a job offer.Traditionally, interns have been students in their teens or early 20s who get educational credit in exchange for their unpaid labor. But that demographic may be changing. Older, more experienced workers who want to move into a new industry are finding that internships are the key to getting a foot in the door, and some businesses have begun to alter the terms of their internships to widen their pool of applicants.
