Do We Need to Rethink Internships, to Ensure Millennials Get Off to a Good Economic Start? - Catalogue Magazine

Catalogue Magazine recently published an article on the need to rethink internships, particularly those that are unpaid. The article highlights that 60% of interns surveyed (in our 2015 annual survey) were working for free or not gaining any course credit at all - which is illegal under Australia's Fair Work Act. It then goes on to point out that only one in five of those interns are actually hired by those companies, and that unpaid work experience doesn't carry the same weight on resumes as it used to.
