What is an internship? Why Should You Intern?
You can begin exploring the different internship opportunities as early as your 2nd semester as a freshman. An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent (source: National Association of Colleges and Employers). NACE has developed guidelines as to what describes a legitimate internship. Still unsure if you want to intern, here are 8 great reasons why you should do at least 2 internships before you graduate.
