    yeah....I hire people....

    If you work for free you're either a doofus rich kid or an idealistic clown-idiot.

    Unpaid internships are just over-hyped crap.
    The intern works insanely long hours & gets crapped on by the organization, because the intern is viewed as the village idiot by the established (and SALARIED) members of the organization.

    In short?
    America, where we all live, is a capitalist society. Thus, everything has an assigned value. Ergo: you're worth something. And that means you don't work for free. Get paid for what you do. ALWAYS.

    Unpaid internships are just use & abuse. The rich girls from Connecticut do it for the fashion designers in NYC & in the process they take it up the dirt road & turn into *** hags.

    The surf rags oughta be ashamed of themselves for dangling this carrot in front of young people. It gets 'the intern' absolutely nowhere.

    Internships for college credits aren't simply unpaid, you also pay to work (per credit you receive).

    I interned 2 summers ago at a casino which helped me land the gig I have today in a different casino. I got this based on my work ethic and personality. life isn't about who you know anymore, that will only get you in the door. Its all about who knows you that will keep you there and promote faster - internships are a good wa y to prove yourself. + most colleges require it.

    i just think interning for a magazine is a waste of time - print is dead. When was the last time you purchased a magazine off the rack (other than airports). IMO intern for a internet advertising company - same idea as a magazine except online and more jobs down the line.

    off topic, but IMO, print will never be dead as long as there are people (like me) who prefer hold something physical in their hands while they read. a magazine, a book, a newspaper...the readership may be down, but they will not be dead as long as people buy them. & people still do. i still subscribe to magazines & rarely look at their online content, unless i catch wind of something really cool there.
    for me, technology like the kindle reader or internet doesn't really hold a candle to having that tangible object right there in my hands. it's a totally different experience.
