I somewhat understand the reason behind it, but I'm wondering if it's worth it?

I plan on finishing highschool this year, going to college, and becoming an intern for Sony, or UMG.

After that, what would be my options? I just don't want to waste my time.

You learn a lot as an intern, so it helps you understand how a business functions. I was an intern earlier this summer, and about half way through the internship they hired me and now I'm getting paid. Also networking is the key to success, so get to know as many people as you can!

Yeah internship are almost worth more than education, Experience > Education. But with that said its almost impossible to just walk in somewhere and get a internship without some kind of education for that field. BUT with that said I do know a friend that just randomly got a intern job at an insurance company that lead to a full time job, I think it was a family hook up.

Work for free, doing something I love, and possibly getting a job after.

Or

Get a paid internship doing something that doesn't interest me?
Both sound horrible to be honest unless your rich. I would rock with the 2nd one and the 1st one tbh. Double up on that shit. Why not do the free internship while working a part time job

Alternative way for getting a qualification + experience + getting paid at the same time.. If they dont higher you after the internship, other employers LOVE EXPERIENCE, sometimes experience is better than having a piece of paper saying you learnt form the books.
