Internship gap year

Has anyone managed to pull an "internship" year i.e. have internships at 3+ companies over the course of 1 year? I am trying to do this before going to do my Master's. Is it worth it?

    I have a few friends that have done it at my University. Definitely possible. They seem to think it's very much worth it.

    That said, part of the big benefit of this is that you'll get three return offers for after graduation. If you're going to get your masters, this becomes less useful.

      Well I think a year of internships at mid-tier tech companies wouldn't be far off in terms of salary, as you also have stuff like relocation bonuses which add up if you switch 3+ companies

      Internships have perks to make recruitment easier. In your case, it's harder to justify relocation in off-season for just one person.

      @oNatenOw I was trying to say that when you draw the line after the year, the compensation would be really close
