I just want a ballpark average of a minimum amount of money I should save when I should start seeking internships... I know I shouldn't do this now, but having a ballpark cost would help me I think. Here's my plan: - Finish College with B.S. Business Administration Degree, time estimated 4 years (from Jan2010, so Jan2014. - Save whatever amount of money that seems safe to start seeking an internship in areas/states I've never been to. i.e. CA, FL is my targeted areas where I have film studios I want to try to look for a internship. I was thinking a safe number would be $50,000 to last me for a full year if I couldn't find a part time job while I work the internship(s). A minimum I'm thinking is $20,000 that could last me 6months, maybe 12 months if I live very, very light. Of course the $20,000 sounds better because I want to get into my internship as soon as possible and go into the fields I want to specialize as well. But I want to prepare for any draw backs such as living expenses while I internship. I will first try to get the internship, work it, then a week or two after doing that I plan to get a part time job that I can qualify for and work around my schedule from my internship. What you guys think?
