Kat Saunders I hope not since I'll be graduating with my bachelors in journalism next year.

Margo Hill not necessarily, people are talking about graduate programs but some companies can pay for further education.

Ashley Rodriguez I was lucky enough to get a paid internship in internal communications for a big corporation and have since transitioned into PR (and love it). But I still think things would have been different had I been able to afford to go unpaid.
