While they might not be the
most financially savvy decision
for a debt-ridden college gradu-
ate, unpaid internships provide
various opportunities for students
unable to find or commit to a full-
time job right out of school.
Unlike in the classroom, unpaid
internships offer students the abil-
itytogettheirhands dirty.The Uni-
versity offers invaluable resources,
but it's not until students enter the
real world that those lessons can
be put into practice.
Unpaid internships also give
students the opportunity to net-
work with skilled professionals in
various fields. Establishing rela-
tionships can sometimes be the

most valuable aspect of an unpaid
internship.
Unpaid internships give gradu-
ates the opportunity to explore a
career field and determine if it is
what they truly want to do before
embarking on an actual career in
that particular area. It gives them
a sense of whether they'd like to
continue in that direction or pos-
sibly pursue a new area of study.
Although unpaid internships
offer some great benefits, there is
one obvious downside - the fore-
most of which is not getting paid.
There is also the uncertainty of
whether the internship will actu-
ally lead to a future job.
