I would agree with Carrie, it's difficult to say without understanding exactly what you didn't enjoy about your internship. If you didn't enjoy the career/major field at all, it may be worth taking some additional coursework this year with a focus outside of your major. If you enjoy your career field, but didn't like the specific position you had, a rotational program is a great option. This would allow you to explore different positions so you can determine what you enjoy (or don't enjoy). While a post grad internship would allow you to explore a different opportunity, I would also keep in mind that some internships are only for students currently enrolled in school full-time and not all companies will hire students who have already graduated. I would recommend doing your research to understand if those opportunities exist for your area of interest. Securing an internship during fall or spring semester of your senior year is also another option.
