Why unpaid internships are underrated

Rob Enderle | July 4, 2016
Columnist Rob Enderle writes that experience matters, so taking that low or no-pay internship now can pay off big time in the long run.

Find something you love doing and then retirement doesn’t matter, if you hate your work you’ll likely find you’ll eventually hate retirement as well.  An internship can show you that you really don’t like doing the job before you’ve invested most of your life in it and have huge commitments that lock you into something you hate doing.  

If you do an internship right, it sets you up for what should be a far happier life. Just remember you aren’t locked in to anything until you lock yourself in, and being locked in to something you love isn’t a problem.
