Experience, says, in one word, that "I did that", "I was there", and "I made that happen." So why then, are so many employers forgoing the chance of enlisting experienced workers toward they corporate cause, in lieu of finding more affordable workers?
Growing up in a generation where having 600 Facebook "friends" didn't mean you got a phone call on a Friday night, I originally felt that Facebook was not the best networking option for me, particularly concerning my job search.
My generation has already made sacrifices, and we are sure to make many more. I work hard, pay my dues and don't often complain. But I am no longer willing to pretend this exploitative practice that is unpaid, for-credit internships is acceptable.
