If you’ve ever found yourself in a position to be an intern, you may find yourself questioning “are internships still worthwhile?” Luckily, this fascinating new infographic is here to help you make the decision. What the information on this infograph determines is that it is indeed still worth it, depending on what you’re looking for.

Pretty self-explanatorily, paid interns take away the most from internships over unpaid interns. However, this does not just boil down to the money they receive; it is also found in the experience and learning opportunities that paid interns are getting over and above what unpaid interns are taking away. The skills, experience, networking opportunities and benefits that are associated with internships still make interning a worthwhile endeavour if you are looking to break into the industry.
