I currently hold an unpaid internship. Most of the work I've been doing is not really related to my major or related to my immediate career goals. The people are nice, but I am bored most of the time. Recently I got hired at another internship that is paid, related to my major, and will be good experience to add to my resume. I am sure you can see why I want to leave.
Everyone at my current internship is relatively relaxed. The end date of my internship was always up to me. I initially told them I want to be there until mid august (didn't actually give them a date). Now I told the new internship I want to start next week. How do I graciously tell my current internship that I want to end earlier than I initially thought and that the upcoming week will be my last week there?
I was thinking of making an excuse about how my summer classes are a lot more time consuming than I thought and that I no longer have time to drive out here and intern. The internship is very time consuming as it is a 45 minute drive from my college and I'm usually here for 5 hours, then the drive back.
