Hello everyone! I accepted an internship that will end at the end of June. However, I also just got offered a summer internship that begins at start of June. Will I burn any bridges if I decide to quit the program early to work at the other agency?

I like both agencies, probably the summer internship more in terms of the work they produce. But, I also don't want to kill my chances of a potential full time role down the line at the internship I'm at now.

Ask your boss for advice. That's part of what your internship is there for... to learn how best to navigate career decisions, and they'll appreciate that you actually respect their insight.

You could see if it's possible to split the difference: end two weeks early and start two weeks late.

There is a risk of burning a bridge... greater risk if you just make the decision without consulting. They could also say 'I'd do the same thing in your spot. Good luck!' No way to know without asking.

Thank you for your feedback! I'll ask both places if they'd be open to ending my program 2 weeks early/late. That seems like a reasonable compromise.

I’ve performed really well here, would it be out of line to push them to find me a partner?
