Default Internship Question

I have my multi-instrument and I'm working on my Comm. I'm also a junior in college and I was thinking about trying for some internships. I was just wondering if any pilots have any experience with internships or if they have noticed any interns around their work. I was also wondering if doing an internship is worth it ?? or if it wont really help you out in the long run ?? any info would be awesome.

Interships are worth it if you don't screw up while there...

My suggestion is to apply for interships , do a good job , ask lots of questions and learn as much as you can about your future careers...

After intership - finish college , join the AF / Navy/ Marines fly military for a while then go to the airlines...

Default Good stuff...DO ONE!

Be sure to pick a place that you would wanna work and that will still be around. The experience will be good anywhere you go but the foot-in-the-door is well worth it.
Search hard too cause there are paid ones as well.

I did UPS which is one year, paid (well paid) and great experience. Coca-cola has one coming up, SWA has one, FedEx may...many regionals have unpaid internships...
Lots is out there...make calls, search other schools webpages and find the best one for you.
Good luck!
