No Pay? No Problem
By Bennie Sham, Internship Program Lead (@beesham)
In our current economic situation, many are finding it difficult to get a paying job. It’s a very competitive time right now, especially between recent grads and recently laid-off workers.
The Boston Globe reported earlier today that recent grads are, once again, applying to internships to gain more experience and get their feet in the door.
While some are turning to internships, others are working pro bono. FoxBusiness reports how one marketing grad offered up his services, free-of-charge.
We all know it’s difficult to work for free but when there are no other options, there is no way out of it (unless you decide to wait until the economy gets better). Good things do come out of unpaid opportunities — experience and contacts. What better way up the ladder?
