As I Was Saying…

internshiptypesQuoting myself from one of my earlier posts about the value of internships and other forms of experiential learning:

I do have one more thing to say about internships, and listen up because this is important: “Getting a job” should never be the desired outcome of doing an internship. Instead, consider what you want to learn and what kinds of experiences you want to have. What you do will ultimately be much less important than what you learn and who you meet. Getting a job will be the icing on an already delicious cake.
