What is an Internship?
Once a student knows what they want to do for their career, it's best for them to start building their resume by gaining work experience. One way to do this is through internships, which is a structured work experience that’s supervised by a professional in the field. A majority of internships allow students to obtain knowledge that they might not typically get inside a classroom. This position, which is typically related to that student's field of study, is meant to enhance their personal and academic development. Unlike apprenticeships, students won’t be required to continue working for the company since internships typically last for a certain length of time (i.e. seasonal, 8-weeks, etc.)
What Are the Advantages of An Internship?
All students should get an internship during their college career for the following reasons:
- You’ll gain valuable hands-on work experience
- You’ll find out if the career path you're on is right for you
- You’ll give yourself an edge over the competition in the job market
- You’ll be able to develop your career skills
- You’ll be able to network
- You’ll gain self-confidence
- Your internship could transition into a long-term job
