What are some ways I can tell if an unpaid internship is worth my time?

Think through all of the skills that you anticipate learning in the position. Since you won't be paid, experience is what you're getting out of the internship. Try to quantify what you'll learn from the internship; for instance, if you'll learn specific skills like Excel or programming or how to use a certain software, or more general skills like the ability to communicate. One big benefit of any internship is that, if you do well, you can ask your supervisor for a recommendation in the future. If you think that you'd learn a lot and excel in the internship, it's probably worthwhile in that it will help you a lot when you're looking for future jobs.
