CHARITY’S ASTOUNDING ARROGANCE STUNS GRADUATE FOG
In the last few months, Graduate Fog has seen some shocking displays of arrogance among those organisations which continue to expect young people to work for nothing, in the form of unpaid internships. But folks, this one takes the biscuit. The National Trust has advertised for an unpaid intern to be their ‘Internship Programme Coordinator’.
