Would You Pay 8K for an Unpaid Internship?

There was a very interesting article in The New York Times yesterday. I don’t understand why anyone would pay $8000 or $9000 for “in” to an unpaid internship somewhere. You have free services at your Career Center while you’re at school (and at AU, alumni career services for the rest of your life) and while we don’t PLACE, we TEACH how to get jobs. With AU alumni connections, there are very few places there aren’t ways to get informational interviews or to find out about openings somewhere.
