Another Casualty of the Coronavirus: Summer Internships
David Yaffe-Bellany, The New York Times
For millions of college students, internships can be a steppingstone to full-time work, a vital source of income, and even a graduation requirement.
But like so much else, summer internships have been upended by the pandemic. Students who had locked down internships as early as September are now jobless.
