If you ran into someone tomorrow at lunch and they offered you an unpaid full time 4 month internship. Is there any person or position that could make you want to take it?

Well yeah sure…if at the end of it the position it translated into a highly paid six figures career at the end of it or gave you amazing experience you knew translated into something great. Kinda like residents in medicine. For years, they make literally nothing and then overnight it changes from like 40K to 500k instantly lol There are absolutely scenarios where the investment of unpaid for awhile is worth it. Like clerking for free at the Supreme Court. I’m sure that would catapult you to much higher pay later on even if you are unpaid for awhile.

Neurosurgery is not the only specialty that makes 500k. There is orthopedic surgery, cardiology, gastroenterology, anesthesiology, Dermatology, etc. All of these hit mid six figures right off the bat easily. Generalists will make about half that. Give or take 100k. I think you are underestimating what doctors make. They make a crap load. Even a family practitioner will hit around 200-250k. And this is just starting. Many cardiologists for instance will make closer to like $700k or more as they move up in their career and especially if they have their own practice. I know one particularly that makes closer to a million, but he is an interventional one. TLDR: being a doctor is probably the only field in the US that pretty much guarantees wealth (if you get into and graduate med school)

I wouldn't do anything unpaid ever. Too old with too many bills - couldn't go back to having zero income lol.

No, because anyone who wants you to work for them unpaid doesn’t value you or what you’ll be doing and will not invest in your development. Can’t imagine any of the Obamas would ask someone to work for them for nothing. Musk is well known as a narcissist in the clinical sense so probably would have no qualms over unpaid labor despite being worth billions

If it turns into full time after the internship maybe. If not no

Does that internship come with like full time CEO of a Fortune 500 company with multi million dollar salary after lol

If there’s hella incentive bonuses up for grabs after the internship period ends… let me at it. I don’t even really care what it is. So long as it’s exciting and not mundane af.

The training told me I'd be auditing cash but I haven't even touched a bank reconciliation.
