Internships may not be a necessary evil, but they do have their drawbacks.
Having to complete an internship is a season of life where one not only has to work for "the man," but sometimes he or she has to do the dirty work... and without getting paid. Awful? Yes. It brings a whole new meaning to the idiom, "learn the hard way." Worth it? That's up to the intern. Sometimes an intern just has to make the best of every situation.
Here's five interns who understand the struggle.
2. Interns get the privilege of doing the dirty work.
Emily Drake is a senior English major who interned at Out of Darkness, a nonprofit organization for women coming out of the sex trafficking industry.
4. Interns have to work around other people's hours.

1. Interns aren't always paid for what they do. It's okay though. It's not like interns are trying to get through college or anything.

3. Sometimes interns don't always know what they're doing.
Kelsie Windsor is a senior intercultural studies major interning at Edwards Road Baptist Church.
