The debate continues.

The unpaid versus paid internship perspective will continue to become the topic of employment conversation in both the US and in the UK.

Many individuals and Human Resources folk see it through the negative perspective instead of thinking of it from the perspective of the intern and the business itself. As Mike Boyle puts it via blog posting on Reuters.com “I don’t consider the experience risky whatsoever” (http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-wealth/2011/06/28/perma-interns-is-working-for-free-a-good-career-bet/). He is absolutely right.

Where is the risk in taking an internship that will not only bolster his skills but give him hands-on experience that one cannot attain through the classroom?

While hiring interns allows companies to save millions of dollars annually, it gives individuals such as myself and Mike Boyle, the ability to propel beyond the typical job seeker and gain valuable real experience. It is a win-win for both sides.

In addition, Mike can gain a resume builder through his internship that will allow him to network with folks out there and utilize that industry specific knowledge he is learning on the job.

As a job seeker and a job recruiter, I can attest to the fact that it is much easier to attend a job fair or a networking event with the industry lingo under your belt. It’s much harder to do as an outsider. With internships (paid or unpaid) an individual can advance their career instead of letting it pass him or her by.
