You commit yourself enough by taking an unpaid internship. But, an unpaid internship after college? It’s a depressing prospect, but a very real one at that. So what do you do? Although you’re technically out of college and ineligible for credits, you’re set if you’re buddy-buddy with a former professor. Ask (nicely) if that professor could type up a letter (printed on your alma mater letter head) stating that the professor would be overseeing a graduate degree credit from your alma mater. Editorials are familiar with graduates, some who return to the internship for several years, who are hopeful that their boss will soon be fired promoted.
