I happened to be tagged in a post in the Marine Biology Network and Job Postings Facebook Group last night that became riddled with comments from a variety of people. The post was an ad for an “internship” with the job requirements designed for a paid position for somebody with 5-10 of experience.
I go on an almost 20-minute rant on how organizations need to stop taking advantage of experience-hungry early career marine conservationists and ask them to work for free in a position that requires them to work what would normally be considered 5 positions.
