Oh, the paradox (Interns bust ‘gofer’ myth, The Rider News, February 1, 2008):
“Students should be required to have an internship,” Brenda Andrzejewski, a 2003 Rider graduate, said. “Nowadays, it’s the only thing that separates you from everyone else.”
Well if everybody has one, it doesn’t differentiate anyone, does it?
So you end up with no choice but taking this internship since everyone else does because everyone else does. That’s how you end up with unfair internships because employers realize that there’s an oversupply of labour.
