Jamie's List has posted an excellent follow-up of its post about James Nachtwey Studio's apparently innocent ad seeking an intern. Jamie's List was surprised at the volume and vehemence of the response, and, although our comments were a degree more civilized, I was surprised at the response it generated here, too, when I linked to it.
The follow-up is much better than the original post—it features Brian Smith, John Harrington, and (through John Harrington's comments) Vincent Laforet discussing various aspects of internships and common practices. Particularly interesting is John Harrington's presentation and subsequent discussion of the legal requirements that pertain. Good reading if you were interested in the issue to start with.
