To work for free or not to work for free…

Lots of people email us their thoughts on internships. Some with more clarity than others:

If all of you guys who work for free for these companies said I am not going to work for free; then one of two things will happen.  You will get paid because they need  you, or you will get laid off because they don’t.  If they pay you, you know you are doing a worthwhile job if you get laid off it was not a job you wanted anyway because it would never pay for you!  Personally I think you are mad working for nothing, it demeans you and proves the company isn’t worth working for.

Pretty clear I think. If you have any thoughts, comment away or drop us an email.
