When to Call it Quits!

By December 22, 2012

Follow me on:

Since internships are such a short and limited experience, I usually recommend that students make the most out of an internship even if it's not what they thought it would be or if the conditions are not ideal. Gaining relevant experience to get hired in a specific field as well as making connections with professionals can make the whole experience worthwhile, even if it's not perfect.

On the other hand, this week I received a note from a student on the Forum who was wondering if they should stay or if it's time to quit their internship and move on to something else.

You can visit the Internship Forum to see my response and to let us know what you think.
