Indiana INTERNnet uses Occupational Information Network (O*NET) Career Clusters to classify internships into job categories. O*NET was developed under the sponsorship of the United States Department of Labor/Employment Training Administration through a grant to the North Carolina Employment Security Commission in the 1990s.

A job category describes the tasks assigned to an intern, while an industry describes the company. For example, an internship in the hospital's information technology department would be classified in the Information Technology job category, but a hospital would be classified in the Healthcare and Social Assistance industry.
