So, internships. You can find the subject in labour geography (Frenette; Perlin; Andrew Ross) and in popular journalism (intern site:nytimes.com). But what is the on-the-ground experience of University of Toronto undergrads in intern positions? What are the benefits? What are the challenges? How is the undergraduate subjectivity negotiated in an intern capacity? In other words, what are our hopes and dreams, our weaknesses and challenges, and how do they fill into or spill out of our dual roles as undergraduate students and interns? The struggle is real.
URSSU is hosting a discussion featuring only undergraduate panelists and we hope to shed some light on the undergraduate internship experience. Following the panel, please join us for pub night and revel in more undergraduate solidarity.
