“15000 yuan guaranteed”there is no need for a written test, the interview will go through a process”. Recently, individual institutions and individuals have appeared on the network platform, falsely recruiting interns in the name of brokers and researchers, or publishing false recruitment information, asking for related fees, and making a big push through payment. Subsequently, the relevant securities firms have made public statements on recruitment matters, emphasizing that official recruitment is the only channel and will reserve the right to pursue the legal liability of those who publish false information.
The “paid internship”, which began in the financial industry, is nothing new. As early as a few years ago, some media reports exposed the chaos of “paid push” in the financial industry: some paid push internship programs and fees, which have nothing to do with internship units, and are purely online intermediary frauds; there are also some intermediary platforms associated with the enterprise “mole”, but not the official behavior of the enterprise. Either way, the profit-making purpose of “pay-for-push” has been made clear. Even if it is not fraudulent, it is unreasonable for it to charge high internship fees.
However, although many well-known companies have declared that “paid internships” have nothing to do with them, and society has repeatedly called on college students not to believe such propaganda, the popularity of “paid internships” has not changed. To investigate the reason, on the one hand, some college students have an undiminished complex for employment in large and well-known enterprises, and the paid extrapolation coincides with their psychological needs for internship and employment; on the other hand, from the perspective of supply and demand, in the face of the increasingly complex and severe employment situation, the internship demand of graduates is more exuberant. The scarcity of employment and internship opportunities provides an external environment for bad intermediaries to make illegal profits under the guise of employment units. The absence of relevant laws and regulations, as well as the difficulty of network technology supervision and other factors, also contributed to the barbaric growth of “paid extrapolation”. In addition, some employers set agreement traps, contract traps or probation traps, which often make graduates have no way to seek help.
In fact, chaos such as paid internships has long been concerned by regulatory authorities. At the beginning of this year, the Ministry of Education and other eight departments jointly issued regulations stipulating that it is “strictly forbidden to organize internships illegally for the purpose of profit.” In recent years, due to the impact on the company image and potential disputes, the chaos of paid internship has also been concerned and rectified by a number of financial institutions, such as strengthening the management of regular staff, expanding the number of holiday interns, improving internship tone, and so on.
It is the responsibility of the government and society to help graduates find jobs smoothly. In order to prevent college graduates from falling into the trap of employment and internship, it is necessary for all parties to make concerted efforts to create a safe, orderly, fair and reasonable employment environment. On the one hand, government departments should coordinate with enterprises, schools and college graduates to purify campus recruitment internship information through the “firewall” system, especially to standardize the behavior of labor market, especially network intermediaries, so as to effectively reduce the cost of job-hunting for college students. On the other hand, college students as job seekers should also strengthen their own legal education, do not believe in employment shortcuts, improve job-hunting safety awareness and prevention ability, and use legal weapons to safeguard their own rights.
