To be honest - and I would love to get paid - I really don't think I should. I am already costing them their time, and monetarily just in terms of software licences and, as I'm working from their office, lot of small stuff too like coffee, some food from time to time and so on. And for that, I provide...nothing of actual value. I give them my potential, if they see it in me in fact.You should get paid IMO. This #latestagecapitalism bullshit like an unpaid internship should be eradicated with a law.
In any case, after 3 weeks unpaid, if they see something in me I have a month of paid internship (which is probably for learning some more), and after that 3-month work contract and so on.
It is what it is, if they force every company to pay for internships, the selection would be much much tougher and less people would be given a chance. That would give a chance for Twitter warriors to complain about something. It's definitely a pro/con discussion.
