Whoever worked free for an internship letter give me a cheer? you can’t possibly ‘cheer’ because there was nothing cheerful.
Tired, dejected, bored, given up on life – just a few words/phrases that describe the life of an intern. Those extra chip on your shoulder in form of an internship letter demands blood, sweat, time and lots and lots of FREE labor.
It is difficult to find a decent internship.
a) The internship business works highly on contacts, it is the same as nepotism in Bollywood, only worse.
b) You will dream of working in an Ad agency but you’ll end up finding an opportunity in events. At that moment, whatever life throws at you, you are game? You don’t have many options either.
c) It’s free labor, you are lucky if your internship pays.
Still, THE BEST learning opportunity.
