Is an Unpaid Internship a Step Backward?

By CAREEREALISM Founder, J.T. O’Donnell I recently joined forces with Monster.com’s social networking division to write a weekly Q&A column called, “Ask the Career Expert,” for their on-line community, Excelle (a professional resource for career-minded young women). This week's question was asked by a college graduate who couldn't decide if an unpaid internship was worth her time. Read here to learn what you should consider when making such a decision.

J.T. answers questions each week via Excelle, on topics ranging from finding your first job, to getting a promotion and managing office politics. You can check out all of her articles here.
