    it benefits the employer.  So the internship was illegal, but we've all done it too (I did it twice).  I wish the DOL would enforce the law though because it's ridiculous that people have to work for free to build a resume.  It's unfair because poorer people can't do it (I was lucky to have some parental financial support to allow me to spend time working for free).
