Internship + mentor = mentornship:

Internship for the bright or advanced individual under guidance of a more senior practitioner. No making copies or coffee.

In Working World the book, Sherry and I say that researching your internships should be taken seriously. You’re trading a precious commodity—your time—for little or no financial renumeration, so you want to make sure you choose to work in an environment where your supervisors truly care about your growth and professional development, and Starbucks runs are kept to a minimum. I’m a fan of “mentornship” to describe this idea.
