    I found my internship via the University's website, but there was no oversight from the University itself regarding the internship. No academic credit received since it wouldn't apply to any of my classes.

    I enjoyed the internship and was paid b/w $10-$12/hr to cover my travel expense to work in their office 20 hours a week on top of my full-time course load. I started work with marketing/web design/business development. After a solid half year of working for them, they've allowed me to work remotely from the university instead of having to drive 1.5 hours to their office.

    I applied my existing web design/marketing skills, gained new sales/B2B marketing skills, met new acquaintances, and got my foot in the door into the IT consulting industry. I think it was worth it in the end.
