There should be a special award for those college students who balance a full load of classes, work a job or two, and take on an internship without losing their mind. Forgiveness of all student loans would be nice, but that doesn’t seem likely in the near future.
So why do they take on so much at a time? Is that internship really worth it to be successful after graduation…worth those few hours left of free time that could be spent actually reading the book they have to write a paper on, or getting in that power nap they’ve been looking forward to for the past two days?
Exposure decided to focus on the topic of internships this week. Deb Svoboda, a photojournalism student from San Francisco State University and Tearsa Hammock, a recent graduate from the same program, are here to tell you what their thoughts are on internships and if they think it’s a good use of your time. So if you’re on the fence about whether you should consider an internship as a photojournalism student or recent graduate, listen up.
