    • Hi Ipek, if you have not done an internship and you expect to only complete one before your thesis/dissertation, you should try to go somewhere that allows you to complete a small project fitting your academic interest and where you also have a chance to spend some time (not a single day) to visit and experience each stage of the value chain. It's a compromise between learning, seeing if your academic interests actually match your expectations by gaining practical experience in that area, and the opportunity to ask lots and lots of questions. This will build relationships, hopefully land you a thesis, and ideally, a job. General advice.
