You can begin exploring the different internship opportunities available through the Brooklyn College Internship Program as early as your Freshman Year (second semester). An internship gives students the opportunity to gain work experience in a desired career while pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree.
Not all work experiences are internships. 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.
Interns have an edge in the job market for very specific reasons. Here are 8 great reasons why you should do at least 2 internships before you graduate .
