Okay the paid internship got me lol lol
@JacieTwisted, is that seriously not a thing in the US? Also why kinder eggs?
@OmegaExceed, a lot of interns work for “experience” and Kinder Eggs are illegal cause some dumb parents let their dumb kids choke on the toys
@JacieTwisted, I haven't seen anyone with an unpaid internship, so I'm on the opposite side.
@SpankyTheHam, same here ive only ever seen paid internships
@OmegaExceed, if you work something like engineering or research internships or other actual job type internships then they're usually paid because they're basically actual jobs. Theres a lot more of the liberal arts internships that are paid in "experience" since that's what people expect them to want to get I guess. It depends on where you go but most of the time they're paid
@Siska the Khajiit, huh thats both a bunch of BS, you cant live off experience
@Thatbright, i see so theres a divergent in who gets paid, which i find kinda sad seems like a bad deal, but i am not in the situation so i dont know for sure.
@OmegaExceed, it depends on your field I suppose
@OmegaExceed, an engineering intern is doing actual work and typically shadow engineers, those who get paid in "experience" go and bring their managers coffee
@OmegaExceed, I made $26 an hour at my engineering internship. With ample overtime opportunities.
@OmegaExceed, in Michigan, unless it's a non-profit, it has to be paid.
@Siska the Khajiit, if it can’t detect a large plastic tater tot the second they bite into it they deserve to die
@OmegaExceed, we had 2000 hours unpaid intern work in a pharmacy before we could graduate at Purdue- was a part of the curriculum
@ajr12100, OMG wow that sucks 2000hrs desr god
@OmegaExceed, they’d actually send us around the state/country to work in pharmacies without getting paid and we had to find our own living arrangements for one month blocks of time. But don’t worry, we were told we could take out extra student loans to cover the cost
@ajr12100, wow, i find that revolting in a way....more debt and no pay, i pray you get paid well when you DO get a job, or some of these interns hire you once you graduate? since part of school here in canada is coop where you go and intern somewhere to get Exp but you are paid (my bro in computer science got paid 40k for a semester)
@OmegaExceed, yeah we are well paid when we graduate- I started at 117,000 a year and I work 4 days a week (10 hour shifts)
We also do have co ops for engineers here which is the same deal but my major didn’t have those
@ajr12100, I had 80k in loans when I graduated. Moved back with mom and dad for two years and paid off my loans and bought my first house with cash
The last two are too painfully true
@megamanx181x, kinder eggs are the shít
@megamanx181x, technically it should be kinder surprise. Kinder eggs are different and are legal in usa

I had a pain internship, so I guess that just makes me lucky
