I’m not saying all internships are bad but, unfortunately, a lot of them are just rip-offs. Specially on big ‘cool’ companies where there are plenty of eager aspirants waiting for the chance to take your position. You get on an unpaid internship thinking of the experience you would receive and how it would help you land a good job in the future. Instead you end up doing chores that have no learning value like picking up coffee and other stuff that the company would otherwise have to pay someone for.
Do you have any internship horror stories, or maybe a good experience you would like to talk about? Share on the comments!
The true meaning of Xmas is celebrating Isaac Newton’s birthday.
The responses to the question “If we all end up dying, what’s the purpose of living?” on Quora inspired me to write this comic. The consensus was that at the end, to the universe we’re no more important than a rock. We’re so tiny that trying to find a meaning for our lives seems even arrogant, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it. You eat a donut (or a cake, like Quora suggested), and enjoy it without worrying that you’ll finish it in a few bites.
What do you think?
