working for free

it has become common for college students, graduate students, law students, and those seeking permanent paid employment to take on summer, fall, or spring internships that are unpaid.

i have done my fair share of unpaid internships, and i’ve always looked to them for valuable experience that paid jobs could not provide. working hard for the [future] money, i like to say.

this new york times article & this story got me thinking about the issue.

i will keep my own editorial comments on this topic myself, in the interest of finding out exactly how you all feel about these unpaid internship experiences and the employers that so willingly take on summer employees in exchange for free work.

so… [drumroll, please] … i introduce to you the very first poll on this blog!

please participate. i’m interested to hear your thoughts.
