"Lower socioeconomic students can't afford the experience that the wealthier can and that gap is widening with the recession," says Richard Bottner, president of Intern Bridge in Boston, a college recruiting, research, and consulting firm focusing on paid internships.

In the past, when interns were more likely to be compensated, students from a lower-socioeconomic background were given a similar opportunity for networking—an opportunity that many will now miss out on."
