Actually I worked for free in a company for one month before I got a real job offer. It's a co-op opportunity. Although I don't like the way of the boss treating people, I still appreciate the time I stayed there. I began to touch my profession field and learned vocabulary which I used later. And the most important thing was I got to know how to work in a office evironment and how to follow the procedure.
I will cross the finger for you!
