What I wish was different
Pay was a big reason why more people did not apply to otherwise very beneficial internships. It was also a barrier to those who could not afford to take an unpaid internship over a paid job (even if it was outside of their field of study). My supervisor understood this issue for me, so I was able to schedule my hours to accommodate my other job so that I could still pay my bills. However, even a stipend would have gone a long way.
