ProPublica, a nonprofit that produces investigative stories in the public interest, recently raised $23,000 on Kickstarter to hire an intern to help them investigate unpaid internships, which is especially newsworthy this week since another nonprofit's editor-at-large ignited outrage when it posted about an unpaid internship opportunity on her Facebook feed. You can meet ProPublica's new intern here.
Jordan Weissmann looked at a survey by NACE showing that college students who do unpaid internships are more likely to get a job than students who never interned (though students who do paid internships are).
Interns at Google make $5,800—$6,700 per month if they know how to do very specific special computer things. I've made some serious missteps that I'm going to go sit in a corner and think about, peace.
