I think you’re absolutely right. Getting someone to something,let alone at lot of things,for nothing in return is FLAT OUT WRONG!!! Internships are opportunties for people whom lack desired skills in a particular field of expertise,the chance to trade off their hard work IN EXCHANGE for TRAINING in said field. People should know their worth. That way,you can never be taken advantage of. Let me say this: Inerns don’t know ANYTHING! So if you see someone whom wants interns with a ton of marketable skills,(PhotoShop,Flash,etc.)shows you they don’t want to pay for these skills.
Don’t reply to these people. They’re looking to take adavantage of you.
And I second the motion to flag these people.
