A Huffington Post internship sold on CharityBuzz.com for $5,200 this week, reports Jeff Bercovici.
In an auction held last spring, a three-month internship netted a massive $14,400. Last year, one sold for $9,000, and in 2009 the winning bid was $13,000. That price history makes $5,200 look like a serious bargain, and that’s even before you factor in the free soda and the nap rooms.
This post reminded me of an excellent discussion of internships on my site in 2000, with posts from Micki Maynard, Sid Holt, Bruce Bartlett, Doree Shafrir, Keith J. Kelly and many others. (Note: The Wayback Machine pauses for a few seconds before jumping to my old site.)
