Nailab CEO Sam Gichuru has been trolled on social media after he declared that companies shouldn’t pay their interns.
Gichuru had given a couple of reasons, saying that the founder/CEO of Herdy was once his unpaid intern and after internship, he founded his own company which has now hired over 10 people.
His argument on why he was/is drumming for an unpaid internships is we enumerate below.
1. Have a mission to learn, connect and lay a positive image of yourself in 90 days.
2. Finance your internship for example through help from parents, friends or loaning applications, and give a repayment plan.
3. Ask permission to sell cakes or other things to staff members.
4. Quit internship when you have learnt all you wanted.
