WWYD Update: Choosing the Internship
Occasionally, when I answer a question sent to me from a reader, the reader will later email me to tell me whether or not he or she took my advice and what the results were.
Last week, a reader asked me if it was okay to bail on Americorps to take “an internship at a publishing firm that I would love to work for full-time.” As it turns out, the reader had already made a decision before reading my response. Here’s an update:
“I ended up taking the internship, and then two days after I started the internship, a salaried position opened up. I interviewed against other candidates, and got the job! Actually a salaried employee now. :) Excited to be living the post-grad dream.”
