Dear Experts, I applied for a few spring internships and only heard back from one. The interview went well and I have a feeling I'll get the position. Unfortunately, this internship program is the least interesting of the three I applied to. Even though I don't think I'll enjoy myself, should I take this internship position? It's also the least related to my major out of the three. Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter:Q#359 Unless you have a better plan for your time, I would take it. You can always continue looking while you gain experience. (@gradversity) Q#359 U never know, might end up lovin it. Regardless it's a learning experience. Remain positive & give it ur best effort. (@DebraWheatman) Q#359 If U really don't want it, prob won't get it. Chg attitude: it's a chance 4 U 2 dev skills, gain exper. (@juliaerickson) Q#359 Sometimes opp. to learn outweighs enjoyment factor. If only opp. avail. better to learn something new & expand skills. (@DawnBugni) Q#359 If the alternative is sitting at home on your butt, then go for the internship! (@beneubanks) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
