Is job experience compensated?

Work experience is often unpaid since you are only there for a short period of time and the responsibility you will take on is modest, therefore we would not recommend doing more than a couple of weeks.


Work experience, unlike an internship, is just meant to be a preview of what's to come, so don't be dragged along for months of unpaid work experience. If the organization is pleased with your work and wants you to return, consider the idea of drafting a contract outlining the terms and circumstances of the agreement – and, most significantly, remuneration.
