Internships are a touchy subject. For some people, unpaid internships are a deal breaker. For others, it's how you get your foot in the door. That said, there are some objective things to consider. Internships are a two way street. Think of them as a trade-off – you help, you learn. Not you stay back until 9pm helping to paint the studio office. You shouldn't be ther...
