    Hello everyone,

    I've been offered an off cycle 6 month internship at a company in the top 10 on the FTSE 100. I will be working 37.5 hours a week and be paid £463 per week and have all my national rail expenses reimbursed. I live in London and my work place is located just outside London and around 1 hour and 20 minutes from my house.

    I'm not considering a career there and the travel time is quite excessive. This will be my first job if I accept it.

    I want to know whether I should continue looking for other internships or accept it. Also, in terms of Salary; is it reasonable considering all my travel expenses are paid?

    Thanks

    You say this will be your first job? Why not accept it for the experience and after 6 months you would have something on your CV that can help when applying for other jobs.

    I would go for it, it's just six months, although the travel time is not too excessive. It sometimes takes me that amount of time just to get from one end of London to the other side for work. It will be good for your CV and after the internship you could always try and get another position in a different department? If possible that is. Good luck!

    I would take it if I was you, any experience (in a professional capacity) is better than none.
