What is an internship? Why do one?
An internship is your best chance to test out potential career choices. You'll get real-life experience doing the work of an employee in an organization. It is also a good way to learn about different management styles and work environments. Internships help you learn what type of work suits you.
An internship helps you develop professional skills and build a network of contacts. This will help you later when you begin your job search. It is also the best way to connect the learning you are doing in the classroom to the world of work. You will learn by doing!
An internship will help you get a job after you graduate. Employers seek job candidates with some type of experience. Internships build your resume and increase your chances of getting hired later.
