MOBILE, Ala. – Elizabeth Dexter-Wilson, M.S., coordinator of career development services at Spring Hill College, is a contributor to the recent e-book publication “Lies, Damn Lies, and Internships: The Truth About Getting from Classroom to Cubicle.”

The book by Heather R. Huhman seeks to calm controversy surrounding internships and is geared for intern candidates, mentors, employers, nonprofits, career centers, higher education and the government, specifically the U.S. Department of Labor.

Topics include: How important are high-quality, mentor-based internships to education and our economy? As an intern, should you really allow a company to use you as free labor? As an employer, is it right to exploit young talent to save a few dollars? What can you do personally to provide mentorship to a young professional instead of contributing to even the perception of exploitation?

Huhman is founder and president of Come Recommended, a content marketing and digital public relations consultancy for organizations with products that target job seekers and/or employers. She has nearly a decade of public relations and marketing experience, specializing in media relations, content marketing, and social media and is also a recognized career expert.
