    • Are You Being Taken Advantage of in an Unpaid Internship?

      If so, it’s time to act. It’s hard to believe it’s back-to-school season already. Summer break has come to an end as college students across the country move back to their dorms or apartments. Many of these students will take up an unpaid internship during their spare time. These positions can be a great way to get on-the-job training and experience.

It can seem like there has to be a right answer, that you have to choose taking charge or receiving direction. However, there’s plenty of room for personalized answers that relate to you specifically. Not sure how to start crafting your reply? We’ve got you covered.

However, it’s perfectly fine if you would rather stay in the back and support the rest of the team. This question pops up so managers know what you’ll be like to work with if you get the job. The only wrong answers are those that are unclear or make it seem like you don’t like working at all.
