When to say no....
How many internships can a person do before they either:
a) Get a job?
b) Realise they're being exploited?
I really wish that option a were true, but i'm beginning to think otherwise. There are many positions available on a variety of different publications, from the prestigious to Tug and Salvage magazine, for the journalism student with a passion for, well tugging and salvaging. Where do you draw the line? How on earth do you get that amazing portfolio which will proudly showcase all your bylines? In all honesty I suppose there's no easy answer, growing some balls and pitching things to magazines and papers should be a start. I am sick to death of being unemployed and only employable in the eyes of the media world as an intern.
Maybe another change in career is in order...
