Yes, Don't doubt If you want to get better communication skills just do it. This is skill can't get from the book,in the internship it will tell you How to get people trust ,How to work together with other people , How to manage you time....Most important is accumulation of human veins, it will help you create more opportunities when you graduated.

Although I do agree that anything you do will help add to your future, I would recommend that you do not settle for the sake of building your resume. If you focus on being intentional today, you won't have to work so hard tomorrow. The great news about college is that you have more room to be selective and take that $9.00 hour internship of your DREAMS! Don't wait until you have bills to pay and a family to feed to start intentionally pursuing your career goals.


My recommendation to you: If you ABSOLUTELY have to take an internship for financial reasons, take it, but as soon as the better opportunity becomes available, jump on it. Don't waste time simply trying to "build skills" if it's not what you want to do in the long run. The competition is FIERCE and more college students are graduating with impressive internships and part-time jobs. Do it if you can.
