Conde’s Move to Discontinue Internships Could Be Good News

Last week, fashion followers, college students, job seekers and members of the media let out a collective gasp when publishing house Condé Nast—home to such lofty titles as Vogue, Allure, Glamour, Vanity Fair, GQ and The New Yorkerannounced that it was doing away with its internship program. The move came after two former interns filed lawsuits against the company, alleging that they were paid below minimum wage while toiling away in 2009 for W and The New Yorker.

if unpaid interns aren’t doing the work, somebody has to do the work,” says Chandra Turner, the founder and president of Ed2010, a website devoted to helping young people land their dream jobs at magazines and websites across the country. “That means that [whoever doing the work] will be paid. And that could be really good news!”
