Unpaid internships self-select for the worst candidates, because the best candidates will land the internships that are both prestigious and paid. So your internship is rarely going to be anyone's first choice. Terrible business model.

However, your headline should probably note that Conde Nast is ending all interships, not just the unpaid ones. I assumed that this was a good thing, then read the article and realized it wasn't.
