Want To Work For The Kardashians? Here Are Their Job Postings And Sadly, They’re 100% Real

Everyone has to start their career somewhere, and the Kardashians have an offer to those who still haven’t. They are offering a part-time unpaid internship at Jenner Communications to college students, but people think applicants should be careful. Some are pointing out that this deal might not even be legal.

For example, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division, “the extent to which the internship provides training that would be similar to that which would be given in an educational environment, including the clinical and other hands-on training provided by educational institutions.” However, the Kardashian internship composes of such deeds as “grocery shopping and helping with [the] dog.”

Other internet users are saying that all of this is very standard for internships in anything related to entertainment. “That’s the reason the ad says applicants must be a student and get credit for the internship. No one ever follows up on this stuff,” one commenter said. “The department of labor or whoever asks if the internship has educational value, they say yes – they earned college credit for it. Box checked everyone moves on. Moreover, the schools can’t/won’t push back because if they demand that there is an educational component and not unpaid work (which frankly is worse than that because the students often pay tuition on those credits) the businesses/studios just won’t accept anyone from their school.”

If that were the case, the Kardashians would have people working for them, not for free, but paying university rates, and possibly going into debt to wrap presents and run other errands. Scroll down to check out their ad and the responses it triggered by people who have worked as an intern for Jenner communications and also people who have paid Kardashian jobs.

Exactly! Such a trashy family. If you’re currently enrolled in college you are so far above this family in accomplishments, brains and actuall life purpose. Stay away.

Apart from the fact that it is outrageous for people that are very wealthy to ask students to work for free as "an intern", they also abuse the terms and regulations. Yes, these are the people that have so many followers who admire every fart of this gang of immoral low lives.
