My professor of computer science sent out a job posting in programming, as they needed more technical people. I called, asked about the job, and he said it would fulfill a computer science requirement as an elective for credits. Which was the selling point. Interviewed, got the job, all of that was fine.
Later, I contact my computer science adviser who said it will not count for any requirements, because it is technically an internship, and the computer science department does not count that for anything. It only counts for empty credits.
As such, I really do not want to participate in the internship now; it simply is not lucrative. However, I have already accepted the job and been working here a week.
Is there any polite way to leave a job this early?
