Is it more beneficial to have unpaid internships and more of a variety of experience or paid work with strong connections, but not as much of a variety of experience??

Asked Florida, Florida

I'm hoping to make my future applications to veterinary school as strong as possible and I'm wondering if paid work is given more consideration even if it isn't necessarily as varied as having multiple unpaid internships in a range of sub-fields. # #internship #volunteer #college #vet-school #veterinary-school #veterinarian #application #experience #resume

I believe having a variety of experience would be the most beneficial.  I don't think most employers will care if you got paid and working without pay shows great desire to gain experience.  Wherever you work or do internships you can start to build strong connections.


With every good wish.
