Ivanka Trump or whoever runs her Twitter account believed that now was the right time to tweet out an older blog post from her web site. The post, titled “How to Survive as an Unpaid Intern” and written by Trump intern Quincy Bulin, dives into the modern work experience for most people by running down a list of ways to make not receiving a paycheck work for you in today’s fast-paced social world. It isn’t groundbreaking stuff or even that outrageous, featuring tips like “take up a part-time job” and “socialize on the cheap,” with quotes from some of the interns at Ivanka Trump HQ:
“By working on-campus jobs and doing freelance design work during the school year, I was able to put away enough money to be able to have some summer fun on the weekends,” says MacKenzie Schroeder, our graphic design intern. Mackenzie Owens, our licensing intern, adopted the same philosophy with her job at a restaurant, where she works during the school year. “At the end of each night, I put half my tips in a clear jar so I could see my progress and motivate myself,” she says.
