I am in year 1 in business school and a lot of my friends are planning to go for internships during this summer break. Should I be doing that? Is there a need to?

Considering it is only my first year, I will have 3 more summers to do internships or attachments.

Hi Anonymous, I guess ultimately you may wish to ask yourself what you wish to gain out of your 4 years in university. It could be to land yourself into a high paying job, or making a lot of networks in school, or trying out something new such as a new sports or dance or joining a new community organisation, or even picking up new skills (both hard and soft). The options are aplenty. And from there, slowly plan your advancement towards these goals.

As a side note, there are also companies who offer winter and part-time (during term time if your schedule permits) internships, albeit these offerings are not in abundance. Hence if you really wish to dip your toes into many roles and industries, you may consider maximising these windows as well.

Eventually, run your own race and do not be put off by what others are doing. You have invested a lot in your university education, so maximise the 4-year experience. This is possibly the last leg before you are officially a working adult. I can only wish you the best of luck in the journey ahead!

Your summer internship will make a very good stepping stone for you when you embark on your new career after graduation! Your internship performance may be a guage as to whether your internship may be your future career place, making the job search process way easier. Your work experience counts for something because the skills you learn ultimately builds up your resume (VERY IMPORTANT!). Either way, an exposure to different companies allow you to learn different cultures and skillsets.
