    I've been given an opportunity to do an internship for 6 weeks over the summer, it could be in any role such as law, banking, property, marketing etc. I'd be earning up to 400 pounds per week and working 5 days a week from 9 to 5.
    This will be straight after my exams in June. I know this is a gud opp. But I hate working from 9 to 5 full time, i just wanna relax this summer not make my brain go to **** working full time. Also I already work once a week from like 8 till 6 and i would acc go crazy if I had to work like that full time. i need money but i also wanna just wind down after a really stressful year. Should I do this?

    Up to you. Personally I’d take that opportunity. You get more work experience and also extra money.

    Sounds like a fantastic opportunity and will look great on your CV as well. You can still relax in the evenings and on the weekends and really 6 weeks isn't that long. What year are you in?

    Work experience is invaluable these days, especially considering the job market is already so strained. I'd take the work.

    I totally agree.
    You would be a fool to turn it down. You get the experience and the money. Winner.

    and besides the sectors in which i get work experience are not sectors that im likely to be working in, in the futture. I just thought it would be good for money but i cant imagine working full tiem like that I'd literally go bonkers and bail before the week is over

    You're in a dilemma. If I were you I wouldn't take it.. mostly because you already have a job that can fund your leisure time! Like you said you can also pick up some more hours. + Ya can enjoy your summer.
