I get asked a lot about what to look for when applying for an internship in the bay area. The question always comes up in the form of how do I know if an internship is the right fit for me? And I’m not just talking about specific skills, I’m also talking about personality traits.
I can’t speak for everyone that has a similar question, but I would say that if you have a job that you’ve worked at for a long amount of time and the company you work at doesn’t seem like the type to really care if you want to work for them, you may be better off pursuing an internship that is a little more open-ended. So, if you love your job, you could go for a summer internship and work there for a few months.
That being said, there is no way to tell if a job might be too open-ended. For example, there are some companies that dont have a whole lot of specific job descriptions, but are open to interns who are willing to learn something new. Other companies like to have job descriptions that have detailed requirements for the position. So if you love your job, you could go for an internship where you just know youll have to learn a new skill or a new way to do things.
I have a few friends who are interning for startups. I think this is a fine way to work, but if you are not comfortable with your current position and want to do something completely different, this could be a problem.
Of course, there is the issue of just how much of a difference learning a new skill or some sort of job can make to your overall career. While you should never be afraid to work on your skills, I think it is possible to get carried away with a job that can really take over your life. Not in a good way.
I’m not saying I am advising you to take a job that is only open to interns, but I am saying that you should ask yourself if you are sure you want to start over. There are a lot of people who love to work at startups and it would be a bit weird if you are one of them.
I’ve worked at a few startups in the past. One of them was a company that was created to help small businesses in the bay area. I worked there for about a year and a half. They were a great company to work for. They have such a low turnover rate, they also pay their interns very well. They wanted a few young people who enjoyed working in tech and who knew the business world.

Ive been going to this company for a while now. Ive always loved tech and am always looking for ways to learn about it. I know what it takes to be a good intern, and I can also tell you that there is a lot of competition for this position. I was told my internship would be a short one. If I didnt like it, I wouldnt have gotten the job. Ive worked for a company that was created to help small businesses in the bay area.
You might want to think twice before you apply. It’s possible that the company will make an exception and offer you a paid internship. Or the company might just send you to an intern on the spot, even if you don’t like the work or if you’re unsure of your skills. That’s exactly what happened to me. I’d left my internship and was applying for jobs with a company that did not require paid internships.
