The Timeline Of An Unpaid Internship

Have you ever endured an unpaid internship? The last time I considered relocating, all the job listings in my field were unpaid internships, which was disheartening as I have kids to support.

The commenters agree, except they say that Hamburger Helper is too expensive (or at least the hamburger is), so you should expect to live off ramen instead. Link

I've done them for graduate school credit, one in a library and another in a hospital. Both were ultimately useful in that I got credit hours for them and some experience. But I would never do one in some hope of working it into a full-time job. I'd stock shelves at a grocery store instead.
