People seem to be ignoring the fact that good interns get offered jobs. I have a full-time job lined up and just like all the other new hires, was an intern last summer. I probably wouldn't even have gotten an interview if it wasn't for my *unpaid* experience in the same field prior to that. That's why there's so much of an emphasis on getting internships these days. This isn't a job market where you can whimsically apply to places and expect to be hired. You need to prove, among many other things, that you want to be in the industry, know what you're doing, and are qualified. Nothing speaks to that more than actual work experience.
