Decide what kind of company you want to work for

It's not just the career path you choose, it's the environment around the path that matters. Different people have different needs when it comes to where they work. Some prefer a more professional atmosphere. Others dig a relaxed vibe. When researching a company to intern for, look them up on Glass Door to get a sense of the company's workplace culture. Actually, that's good advice no matter what stage you're at in your professional career.
