3.          In today’s society a lot of people are choosing to go into large amounts of debt to go to college. To try to control the debt many students one or multiple jobs to help pay through school. With unpaid internships people will work full shifts and get nothing for it. Juggling a full time job with school is hard enough but, having no source of income makes everything that much harder. An internship is usually two to three months, that’s a long time without having any income coming in and actually sets people up to accumulate more debt. Another way of looking at it is that unpaid internships make the hole that your in, deeper.  

              Millennials should not have to work for free to get their ‘foot in the door’. This statement of young people not having to work for what they get is a busted myth. The way the job market is now, we have to work twice as hard to compete with people that already have a degree and/or established title in the workforce. Not to sound ungrateful in anyway (the knowledge of working at an established company is very rewarding and beneficial for my future), the time spent between school and an unpaid internship leaves little to no time for extra cash flow on the side. So what is a broke college student to do?
