“I have known several kids to go on interviews for unpaid internships and this is what they are told. You must work 3 months and you must work 9-6 five days a week. Understandably there needs to be some rules set. Having someone fly in for 3 weeks is not worth it when it takes a few weeks just to find the bathroom, I get that. If these kids were getting paid something, they might feel a bit different about hard labor for little pay vs no pay at all. Getting paid is important. It recognizes your worth. It could be as much as 200 a week.”—
Why unpaid internships are counter productive for everyone involved:
The latest installment of the epic Showboat has just enough swag to let you flow through a Monday. Watch Almeria through it down against Barcelona, and vice-versa, while Nasri and Hulk also have a go at one another, although Nasri produces with his style.
Andriy Arshavin and his legendary interview skills
Question:Andrey, what do you think people need pain for?
Arshavin:For people not to forget that they are mere mortals. Some people say that suffering purifies the soul.
Question:Does anybody go in for sports in your family?
Question:Hi. I am 25 years old and I'm still not married. My parents are very upset about this. They say I can end up a spinster. But I don't want to get married yet. What shall I do? (Sorry if this is off topic; just want to know your opinion)
Arshavin:I think I can help you. Step 1. You need to find a scruffy heavy drinker. Step 2. Once you've found him, try to persuade him to "marry" you. I think that for a small amount of money, he will agree to fulfill the role of your fiancé :)
Finally. Bring this guy home. Tell your parents he'll live with you ;)
I think next time they will think better before forcing their opinion on you.'
