So if you are not aware, news broke out today that Marie Claire is paying R30 a day to internship. The post also requires the intern applicant to have a car and write 250 word article to prove their skills. Well Twitter went crazy, and rightfully so. Generally, media companies are known to exploit. So we decided to run a poll of our own to see what people had to see. First here are the Tweets.

 

When we started out here at Internships SA we were against unpaid internships. After running a poll last year, we learned that some graduates are willing to take them. So we decided to start posting them on the site, not because we are agree with the principle of unpaid internships, but because we saw that others are willing to take them, and therefore we respect their rights.
