This is an open letter to Marice Cumber who challenged us and Inspiring Interns for advertising an internship to our followers on Twitter. The internship can be viewed here and the twitter conversation is attached as an image below.

Hi Marice, 

You're correct, we have helped to promote an internship whereby the intern gets free travel, free accommodation and daily expenses but no salary. Due to this opportunity being for a start up in Gibraltar we felt it was worth sharing to our followers because the experience of living and working abroad is incredibly beneficial when looking for a job. I (Donald) did the exact thing in Amsterdam and that's what allowed me to get an internship at Interbrand London before getting a job in the industry. Both were unpaid by the way, but I was given accommodation in Amsterdam.
