My problem is that I still don't know what I want to do for a living and don't want to end up doing internships unrelated to what I am gonna end up doing after college. As you said "relevant work experience", but what if my work/internship experience doesn't relate to whatever job I'll be pursuing. In that case, is it still better to do any internship than no internship at all?
That's tough. I can relate to that. If I could do it all over again, I'd try something different each summer. At least, that'd narrow down the field by the time I graduated. Do you even have an idea of what kind of work makes you happy? Plus, there are some jobs that can be cross-referenced with others. It's always good to have some type of work environment experience because you don't want to be perceived as just a bookworm.
How come? What are the fields you are referring to?
I'm a marketing major/graduate but some of my experience is in sales. I hate sales. It seems like employers overlook my PR
, event planning and creative endeavors to only focus on my success as a salesperson during ONE summer.
