Cash for internships

Earlier this week I read a wire story in the Globe and Mail about students having to pay a fair bit of money to secure a Wall Street internship. Here it is from another outlet.

Now, while this doesn't apply to PR (yet), I don't like it one bit. I think it's up to senior people in any field to keep the door open so the smartest and most resourceful young people find a way to get in (without having to go to an ATM first).

We've found some of our best young people from standout resumes that came in 'over the transom'.

Right on - Internships in France are out of control with interns logging years of "experience" before the offer comes.
