Job vs. Internship

There are a lot of differences between an internship and a job.  Typically, an internship lasts only weeks or months, and is focused on completing a specific project or gaining particular skills.  A job, on the other hand, is year round, and is paid.  There are other things you will want to consider in deciding what is best for you.  Visit the Job and Internship Questions Page to get a better understanding of the differences between these two.
