I'm quickly coming to the end of my senior year of college. I'm currently working at an internship in my field. I don't particularly like this internship - its not the subject in my field that I would like to make a life in, and I feel like they don't really trust me to do the job they hired me for (but they haven't really given me any training on how to do it).
This week I got a job offer from a different company. A job that is in the subject matter I want to make my life in, a job that offers better compensation than I think my internship could offer, a job that has much more opportunity for future growth. Unless my internship offers me significantly more compensation, I would accept this job offer in a heartbeat.
How do I tell my internship? Do I inform them that I have accepted an offer (an go ahead and accept the job offer), or that I have received an offer so that they have the option of making their own offer?
