“My first unpaid internship was a consulting gig where I helped a startup reduce its attrition. The internship helped me pick skills to land a consulting job.

My second unpaid internship was in a company I worked, where I helped reduce the cycle time of hiring. The internship helped me change my role in my organisation.

My third unpaid internship was after many years of working. I interned in a startup to learn entrepreneurship. It helped me become an entrepreneur.

The purpose of an internship is to learn not to earn. It also gives an opportunity which you would otherwise not get.

95% of startups are not funded. It is a good way for startups to test talent before hiring them. They cant afford to hire people who dont have the skills.

It is probably the only way to help millions who are unemployed to land jobs.”
