This week's question: "I have been offered an internship for the summer, but it's unpaid and only part-time. Is it worth it? What would be the best way for me to make the most of the time I have leftover during the week?"
Answer: Unpaid part-time internships are becoming increasingly common in today's job market for current college students. The part-time aspect of the internship can actually be viewed as a positive, as it allows for you to pursue other experiences during your summer. One option would be to try to land a second part-time paid job that allows you to make money on the side while you also fulfill your internship. You could also consider using this extra time to job shadow in other industries of interest. If you view the internship to be a potential forward step towards your overall career goals, you should consider accepting.
