She sent in her resume and a few samples of her work, and the architect’s assistant called her to come in for an interview, during which she was offered a position in the firm without pay”. Developing Ethical ArchitectsNYSETA Fall 2013 Conference19

20 Examples for Discussion “When she hesitated, the assistant said that many recent graduates like her wanted to work there and that if she did not take the offer, plenty of others would. She was not independently wealthy and would have to borrow money or take a second job to meet her expenses, but she wondered if the experience working for the architect would be worth the price”.
