I am currently interning as a software engineer for a medium-large company. I have a lot of autonomy in my role to learn at my own pace with little expectation and oversight, essentially I can take on as much or as little work as I like (including none), as long as I am learning valuable skills which I can demonstrate to my lead. The internship has been essentially guaranteed to me until I have graduated and am ready to move into an engineering position with the company.
The cut and dried truth is I believe my future career lies elsewhere. Would it be better to spend my time on personal projects which I can put on github/resume or knuckle down and get stuck into company projects to build relationships?
