In January, I was approached via Twitter by the online learning community for interns, The InternView. They asked me if I would write entries for one of their many topics–Intern Life After College.
Naturally, I accepted the opportunity. As I began to plan out my entries, I realized how important it is to step back and look the variety of opportunities that exist. The “typical” career timeline (college to graduate programs to job) isn’t always the best choice for you. More than ever, it’s important to weigh your options and consider things like full-time internships over jobs that pay the bills and continuing education.
Ultimately, I blogged about all that and more in my bi-weekly entries.
