Internship or not worth it?

Currently interviewed for a fall internship that I thought would be in risk management for a start up, but ended up being in a sales & operation.

I have no previous internship experience, but I have made a lot of connections and well on track for a boutique internship during the summer and hopefully an Ib internship during junior summer.

Would a sales & operation internship in a credit start up be worth it/relevant it for fall semester? Or does it add no value for Ib recruitment and Im better off getting something for spring and preparing/networking during the fall instead.

During the internship I would be doing some cold calls, emailing, spreadsheets, some underwriting, engaging borrowers, and some office management.
