I got an internship that I’m not so excited about. I don’t think I will be very challenged in this role. Am I a crappy person if I accept but still search for other opportunities?

Nope, you are the one driving your career not the company. Back in the days when companies provide pensions it made a lot more sense to have loyalty to a company. These days, you need to look out for yourself and pursue things you ambition.

That’s what internships are for… to see what you want to do and not do… just make sure to do everything above board and don’t burn bridges

It’s an internship, by the time you have something else lined up, your internship would be over

Nope

Nope. Get at much experience as you can with this so-so role and make connections so with the next job, it will be what you actually want and have some professional experience already

Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback. I started a new job earlier this year. The function of the role and industry is new to me. My manager told me he generally has higher expectations than the rest of the organization. Originally, I viewed this as a great learning opportunity but can't help to think I'm not cut out for this and fear the worst.

For those who did the One Clubs “Mentor and Creative” program, do we put it as an internship with whatever agency or company that hosted us. So, for instance, if you were mentored by some Google CDs for 6 weeks to create an ad campaign that you pitched and might get produce, would you put in your resume or LinkedIn “Google internship.” Does it qualify as an internship cause I’ve seen multiple students put it as an internship.
