Will Everyone Start Paying Their Interns?
There was some pretty big (shocking) news in the internship world yesterday - VIACOM - one of the most popular companies for unpaid internships announced they were going to start PAYING their interns! I couldn't believe I was hearing this. VIACOM covers MTV, VH1, and a myriad of other opportunities traditionally known for being unpaid. Will this start a new trend? Will all of the fashion and public relations companies soon follow?
What do you think?
