An internship is a short-term, career-related experience that includes an academically linked learning component. By participating in an internship, students gain hands-on learning outside of class.
Through these assignments, students can:
- Prepare for a career in a specific field.
- Develop a network of professional contacts for future opportunities and references.
- Learn about the workplace skills to develop in order to build a strong resume.
- Find out what to expect when transitioning into a full-time job.
