If you're a student and not part of the 1%, you're most likely drowning in debt. You've been sold the same fairy tale your entire life: go to school + study hard = amazing job. Studying for x amount of years does not equal the minimum 3-5 years experience. You've been left with a mountain of debt and most companies wouldn't let you pay them to work. The market is over saturated and you are entitled to nothing.
An entry level internship might be the only way to get your foot in the door. If you should be getting paid is another story, and fighting the system isn't going to give you 3 years experience.
Maybe it doesn't seem fair, but your internship doesn't have to suck. So here are 10 internships available right now in Montreal.
