how do internships work?
i love how general this is. no specifications whatsoever. super exciting.
if you’re doing an internship through a department at the university, then it works however they say it does, i guess. there’s no university-wide internship program (on the downtown campus, anyway), so i can’t give much more detail than that.
if you’re just applying for internships out there in the world, then apply, cross your fingers and go out for drinks afterwards, because applying for any job is entirely too much stress.
finally, here are aska’s Top Tips about making your internship experience the BEST it can be: don’t take any internships that are unpaid (that $h1t’s not worth it), make sure that whatever internship you take works with your school schedule (and yes, you do have to factor sleep into that schedule), and scope out coffee places close by BEFORE starting your job.
all the best,
