In this week’s career chat, we talked with Jon Okerstrom, senior Internet director at Quincy Newspapers Inc. The Quincy news company offers paid internships, or “Quinternships” in journalism, communication, broadcasting and related fields. Such programs stand out at a time when unpaid internships are becoming increasingly common.
During the chat, Okerstrom talked about Quincy’s internship program and about how paying — and ultimately hiring — interns can be part of a company’s success strategy.
