Hello Chris!

 

I don't believe that intern and/or volunteer positions should be posted under the short-term job positions board. Especially those positions that want money (sometimes up to $600-800) in order to take part in their "internship". I think they should be in their own "Internship and Volunteer Openings" board. I understand how important these positions can be, I have had 2 myself, however it gets a bit annoying when some of these positions don't even state in their title that they are in fact internships and thus, unpaid. 

 

Just my 0.02.

Take care,

 

Grant

Just an update: Currently 14 of the first 15 openings are for unpaid/volunteer positions. It's getting a little ridiculous.

Thanks for the suggestion, Grant. It is hard to separate out internships and unpaid because some internships are paid. We can think about adding a category for unpaid/volunteer, though.
