The benefits of internships. Lots of internships.

I read recently there is such thing as 'doing too many internships'. Corinna vanGerwen writes in Masthead Online: "You can do as many as three, but more than that and potential job employers may ask why you haven't found a job yet." I personally think this is the year to break that rule. Personally, I haven't signed up for just two or three internships. I plan on doing at least five.
