for granted) in the general public even in the present day, such as
discipline and being punctual. Lots of jobs that are part-time are in the
service industry such as retail or food, so you are also required to
acquire one of the most sought after skills of all; the ability to deal
effectively with the public.

schedule than interns, their shifts are quite unpredictable from week-to-
week, which makes it tough to organize their summer. Also, part-time
jobs are nice additions to your resume (particularly when you’ve been
given a higher position, they're normally much less of a resume
improvement than internships.

profession or industry. The factor that divides it from a part-time job is
that it stresses the training background more than everything else. Your
bosses are aware of that you're there to gain knowledge of something, so
                                                                                          3

with the 9-5 work week. The consistency of the schedule offers you the
chance to plan enjoyable summer time actions for the evenings and
weekends. The downside of internships is that lots of them are either
voluntary or can exclusively be completed for class credit.




That’s to not say that internships with pay don’t exist, but they're often
tougher-to-locate and much more dog-eat-dog. Unfortunately, various
interns may only go through a disappointing aspect of the job world,
along the lines of just making copies for staff, handing out mail, or
getting coffee and donuts.




Though internships don't always provide the instant satisfaction of a
paycheck, they'll ultimately be more gratifying than a 20 hours a week
job. If you happen to do a good enough job interning, the company will
likely need to keep you around, and you'll have an inside footprint on
potential profession opportunities there.
