What is an internship?
Internships provide real world experience to those looking to explore or gain the relevant knowledge and skills required to enter into a particular career field. They are relatively short term in nature with the primary focus on getting some on the job training and taking what is learned in the classroom and applying it to the real world.
Why should you consider an Internship
Internships provide a link between academic learning and professional employment. This experience allows students to see what it's like actually working in the field and a chance to evaluate the types of jobs that match their personal interests and personality.
