The Paradox of Self-Interest: Are We Witnessing the Slow Death of the Non-Profit?
Meghan Nesmith

Nothing surprised me more about job hunting this past year than how competitive unpaid internships at nonprofits were, along with how incompetent and rude the staff was. I had four different jobs string me along for weeks and months at a time, only to get offended when I told them I’d accepted a position elsewhere (because clearly I didn’t CARE ENOUGH.) It was really odd to be treated like an inconvenience because I had the gall to want to work for free in order to help people. Then, adding insult to injury, the orgs were very snarky about my business background, despite the fact that I was applying very specifically to positions that required a business/finance/tax law skill set.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
