I am currently a Master's course student and applying for my desired position of R&D at a large company. It seems that they highly pay attention to the final research (on the online application form, they spend a quite large amount of characters to fill in that field).
Although I am still in my last semester and haven't finished my final thesis, and it is not so horrible, I am sure it wouldn't be what I want to mention when it comes to an interview because of the theme I have chosen (I was kinda stuck when I needed to pick a topic, so my professor told me just to consider it an "exercise" - and I did). Instead, I spent most of my time doing an internship at a company, where I did gain some valuable relevant experience.
I think I might be wrong with that decision, so I would appreciate any advice how to fix that - how to tell the interviewer about my not-so-good research during my study?
