There’s a lot of wisdom in the Guardian article from Rachel Bowen today:
“(…) my experience has shown that interning leads to nothing except more interning”.
This is one of the factors which should make the current system of interning unsustainable; young graduates from all walks of life cannot be expected to pay tens of thousands of pounds for an education which is supposed to open doors to great opportunities, only to then be told that what they actually need is experience.”
“What I am concerned about is that internships are simply seen as another hoop for already debt-ridden graduates to jump through (…)”
