That's a great question. You should definitely want to make the most out of your internship opportunities and make sure that they are meaningful towards you meeting your career interest. Keep in mind, that candidates that have internship experiences that are applicable to their chosen field, they definitely have a competitive advantage when employers are reviewing their applications. You should ask yourself "Do my experiences add to my competitve advantage?" If the answer is no, then you may want to rethink your internship opportunities.
