I agree with your dad and OBB. Do it now, if you can swing it. What's interesting is that someone here was asking about internships not too long ago and the advice was to suck it up and do it. Maybe if you start putting some feelers out now, you can get a paid one. We pay our marketing interns $17/hour, which isn't bad for a college student.
When are women going to face the fact that they donít know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?
