Hello!
Whether it was a nightmarish few months of fetching coffee and finagling executive calendars (for long hours with no pay) or a rewarding opportunity to work on challenging projects (with pay), for most people, that tentative step on the first rung of the career ladder gave them a taste of what it was like to hold a “real job.” These formative experiences don’t just have an impact on the intern, though. As we explore this week in our new series, “The Intern Economy,” these forays on the way to securing full-time work have far-reaching effects that ripple through colleges and companies and our economy at large. Reporting some of the most promising developments in internship programs alongside shining a light on some of the worst abuses of power and paychecks, you’ll see how the experiences of the most junior members of our workforce will influence everyone.
