BECAUSE GETTING THERE and being there MATTERS
Unpaid internships still exist
Despite the era of voicing our opinions about unpaid internships, they still exist. And, although it is a bittersweet situation, many college students and recent graduates are willing to take that opportunity to gain experience needed for their resume. There are many fields that are hard to break into and having some sort of network and connections helps with the process of ultimately finding your dream job, especially with the experience gained. Gaining powerful connections can land a person in a great place.
