Why Internships Are Worth It [infographic]

Sometimes you can reap rewards that are far greater than financial ones, and deciding to become an intern may just be one of those rewards, as this InternMatch infographic indicates.

Showing that you have the passion and desire for your chosen career field, and that you're willing to work free for valuable experience, is impressive on any resume. In fact, 70 percent of interns are more likely to be hired than canidates without that same experience.

That doesn't mean that you always have to dedicate your time free or without any benefits. An intern working at Amazon can make an incredible $5,366/month just for learning the tricks of the trade. If you're a Disney intern, you can score a magical perk such as free admission to all of the Disney parks and resorts.
