I saw this image on Tumblr and thought you guys should see it. I’ve never seen why internships are a problematic force articulated in such a simple, concise and accurate way.

The image comes from a blog post by Sarah Kendzior, a notable writer and op-ed columnist for Al Jazeera English. While I’ve mentioned before that my previous paid internship is what helped me get my job at CC, I worked four unpaid internships before that, enduring, perhaps more stress than the people who worked at these companies because I was a full time student, had a part time job and was also a full time intern. These experiences are valuable but they shouldn’t only be accessible to the people who have situations where they can work for free.

What do you guys think?
