This is just a simple request.
The media industry has suffered (as have most industries) through recent ecconomical situations.
Do something good for the industry, if a client wants a job done charge them for it. Charge them a fee that covers paying people within our industry, that's what they do for the people in theirs. Rather than asking people to work for free in return for experience/marketing opertunities do your self and everyone else a favour and do your part to help strengthen our industry.
Charge your clients what the job costs and pay those involved to produce it.
