To internship or not to internship?

I'm a junior in high school and have been wondering about internshipping somewhere. For those of you who have, is it really that beneficial?
Where did you internship and do you have any other advice?

In my experience, any internship (regardless of its relevance to your intended field) can be helpful. It provides you experience in a workplace environment, and you also might learn that working in whatever area it is is something you definitely do or definitely don't want to do. Trust me, it's just as important to find out either way. Note: internships are almost always easier to score through connections versus online applications. See who you know, who your family knows, who your friends know. Going through those sources gives you a much better chance of finding something. Hope this helps! Abby Lupi

I believe that this is a excellent idea because you will be able to actually see what the position actually is and what you will be expected to do on a daily basis than you will be able to make a good decision if it is right for you or not.

Doing an internship is excellent if you have the time in your timeframe or careerline. Certain hospital internships in different setting have helped me tremendously learn without having to outright be hired there as an employee and some of them have lasted between a month to 3 years. Even doing different internships across different (sub)specialties in your field can even help you zero in on your interests.
