UNPAID VS PAID INTERNSHIP?
There are several things to consider when deciding whether to undertake an unpaid or paid Internship. Often, there is a difference in the quality of Intern experience between the two.
When a Host Organisation chooses to pay you, your focus as an intern is on meeting the needs of the organisation. Also, the tasks can tend to be of a more administrative nature. Payment or Remuneration could be in any form the Host Organisation chooses: Money, accommodation, free study courses etc.
On the other hand, an unpaid internship tends to cater to the interns’ needs far more than the demands of the Host Organisation. Typically, unpaid internships offer a greater level of work experience.
No matter if you undertake an unpaid or paid internship, an Internship in general should be viewed as an investment for the future, an opportunity to gain experience, references and skills that you will put to good use in your career.
