Why Internships Are Completely Worth It

Feel like you'll never get a paid job? Well, don't worry, it looks like the light at the end of the tunnel is brighter than you probably imagined.

That's right, not only will interning give you experience and a chance to learn and network. It will also decrease the time it takes you to find a job after graduation, help you feel more content at the job you do find (I'm inferring this from the retention stats), and earn more than $10,000 more when you start working. Maybe that internship isn't quite so unpaid after all.
