An internship is an important opportunity for career development for students. However, many organizations are exploiting theses students, utilizing student’s knowledge for free.
The benefit for students is that it can help them with getting their career started. It also gives the opportunity for students to network and showcase their working capabilities. It’s similar to volunteering with the purpose of getting a paid job in the future.
I recently saw an interesting article about internship from the July 2, 2013 Globe & Mail.
Tell me what you think about internships?
