Switch Idea does not allow employers to post unpaid internships because they can exploit enthusiastic college students for free labor. We have found that employers who pay decent stipend during the internship attract the best talent. Not only because money is a big motivator, but also because it helps attract a larger group of highly qualified candidates who feel valued for their time and efforts.
Besides, the pay is an integral part of treating interns as professionals making them more likely to play the role and more likely to join your company full-time at the end of the internship. For more information regarding the Stipend Payscale, contact us.
