What If I HATE My Internship

An internship is a great way to figuring out what you don’t want. It can be seen as part of an elimination process for your future job/career.  

Be reflective and try to figure out what about the internship you don’t like. 
Is it something you can change or modify? 

IS it the people, commute, boss, the work, or the company? 

My advice would be not to quit because there is always something to be learned in every situation.
However, knowing yourself and pinpointing the dislike or discomfort of the situation is key. Asking yourself key questions: will this situation benefit my future career choice? Or will this experience show me that the path I thought was great is not as great. 
Either way understanding the “why” will help you decide what to do.
