Hi, I'm a Korean intl student at Georgetown, and I am about to serve in the Korea military for 2 years. However I do not enter until September, and I was thinking about spending my summer time on an internship inat a boutique firm, which I got through connections.
However, since I am about to leave for 2 years in the military, I was wondering if this internship would be considered "useless", afterall, 2 years is a lot of time. Basically by year 2013, my resume would look like:
Equity research intern, Summer 2011
Korean military, Sept 2011 - July 2013.
What are your thoughts on this? Will my equity research gig be entirely pointless if there is a 2 year gap inbetween, due to military service? Do you think it's even worth it for me to do this internship?
