Don't rush into getting an internship so quickly, do something like this after your freshman or sophomore year. Spend your summer in a place that you've always wanted to go and work somewhere cool like at a dude ranch, a ski resort, a beach resort, or anything you can think of. Remove yourself from your usual routine in order to give yourself a new understanding of what is important. Summer internships are a necessity and the best way to get the experience you need to begin your career. But a summer spent doing something you love, making tons of new friends, and creating memories that you will cherish is the best way to get the experience you need to begin the rest of your life.
