As a college student, I’ve had my share of experiences with internships in both my undergrad and graduate careers. Internships have definitely helped me learn more about my field of interest, make connections, and ultimately decide whether or not I’d like to continue to pursue my desired profession for a living.
However, there can be a downside to internships. The really good ones are almost impossible to get into, some merely require you to keep the staff fed and caffeinated, and others require a lot of your time with little to no compensation.
Whether your internship experiences have been good or bad, have they equipped you with the right professional experience?
