Unpaid Interns? Should You Use Them?

Hey...if people are willing to work for free, how can you turn it down? The old addage "You get what you pay for" obviously comes to mind, but what do you think about unpaid interns?

Sometimes the unpaid intern can be a nightmare, but many times t may become your greatest employee. Interns are typically young, and hungry to succeed. They obviously wouldn't work for free if they weren't now would they? Being an intern is better experience many times if they are willing to take the risk, than to maybe be a busboy and waste their time getting no experience. Take a look at a start up that has hired 6 of their interns already. A style site that posts articles and information on fashion, beauty trends, and anything else like best acne treatment.

The article also goes into being an intern, as well as how, and why you would want one for your business. Mainly because you can't afford to pay someone for the same work. While it may not be easy to do in many businesses, there are plenty of people out there that want good experience for the future and are willing to do the work.
