I am an undergraduate student who has signed up for a 4 months internship at a Canadian university with the Mitacs global intern program.
The initial deal was to travel to the Canadian university for the internship where I would get paid and work closely with the supervisor.
Due to the pandemic, the trip was canceled and borders closed. The Mitacs organisation canceled the internships. However, as I didn't have any possible internship in my country, I agreed to continue the internship remotely by Skype without getting paid.
The problem is that I usually have a strong work ethic, although I am definitely not continuing in research. I believe I should do my best at my current job. I don't think it's okay to lay back and not get it perfectly done but there is 0 motivation.
The supervision is very minimal and I am not getting paid, plus home work.
Finally, I am looking for advice. Should I continue my internship as a good committed person and work full time? Or should I work part time, get it done poorly and learn something for my career in the mean time?
