    Review

    I sought out an internship with a local publishing company to see if I'd actually enjoy working in publishing. Did the internship fall semester of my senior year, so I was well-versed in what I needed from my intern advisers and campus advisers. Other than getting signatures on paperwork, I did not utilize my campus advisers.
    The internship itself was a mixed bag. I worked with phenomenal people but also realized that I wasn't interested in going into publishing (at least not at 21). I do think it was a better use of my time than some of the other classes I could have taken at that point in my college career.

    I already had the internship planned with the organization I was working for when I went to my advisor. I really didn't need my advisor's help except in guidance for writing the 10 page final paper to receive pass/fail credit. I'm sure my advisor would have been more helpful if I needed her.
