Our #1 Cause

paytheinternWe believe that all students deserve equal opportunities to care, education, and internships. But the truth is, unpaid internships cut out opportunities for lower-income students who must work to survive. It is impossible for many students to take an some of the best internships to Washington DC, to Africa, to the middle of the ocean, to the fashion world of New York because they need to keep their job to pay rent and to eat. This is wrong.


The government doesn’t need to do anything other than to make unpaid internships illegal, and ensure that interns are paid a fair wage.

About the Author


Pamela La Gioia is mom to three college-aged daughters, all who work two-three jobs to get through school. It was watching their struggles and determination that inspired La Gioia to begin researching ways for all college students to earn money. Gig economy jobs seemed to be the perfect answer: They are app-based, flexible, and students don’t need resumes and interviews to get hired.


La Gioia researched each company and organized them into a guidebook, making it simple enough for students to find a job that interests them, click on the job link or download the app, and start making money. But wanting to go further, La Gioia also assembled internships, scholarships, ambassadorships, and professional organizations to give students even more of an edge. Finally,  knowing how frugal her own daughters are, La Gioia dedicated an entire chapter on student discounts and places to find coupons.


This book is perfect for matching students’ immediate financial needs.
