Pros: free events, networking, meeting people who will possibly be an asset in my future.
Cons: short or no breaks, small check amounts
Every week I am at an event, promoting for the Village Voice. It is a joy to be a part of something so flexible and free, although I do sometimes crave the daily workings of a traditional workplace. The people I work with are people who will be in my life for a very long time, lasting friendships are made and my supervisor does her best to make sure that our work is comfortable, yet task-filling.
