    chantedor: what you describe is a time-honored way for inexperienced apprentices to get valuable experience in a field. This is great! It is a win-win for both parties.

    The example I cited above (and I hotlisted the diary but I can't find it) was essentially preying on people desperate (as luckylizard points out) to not have resume gaps that might look bad (although in this economy it shouldnt).

    There was one important aspect to the job I mentioned above- the firm was looking for someone with a specific skill set and experience. That is not an internship!

    I think the scenario in this diary is borderline.
