    YES. The WashPost article is spot on. I always wanted a Washington internship all throughout college, but there was no way to make an unpaid internship work with no monetary support. Even during and right after graduate school I passed up opportunities I wanted because there was just no way to make it work, I couldn’t allow myself to go into debt for the experience I would need to MAYBE find a good job in DC’s insane job market.
