Not a big surprise for us, as just today an employer asked if there’s any way his prospective interns could be at least 24 years old and preferably older, because “there’s much more maturity on the older ones”.

But for college grads, seeing people in their 40’s or 50’s looking for internships, even unpaid ones, is something to be eyed with a bit of a disbelief.

As CNN.com explains, in current economy, these people need internships to find their new jobs, just as graduates need them to find their first jobs. With summer vacations over and the new internship season upon us, it’s time for you boys and girls to polish up your resumes and make sure your internship application looks every bit as professional as that of somebody who’s already been a part of the workforce for 20 years.
