An internship is your opportunity to:
- Test-drive a potential occupation
- Develop professional connections
- Gain related career experience and skills
- Apply classroom knowledge in the real world
- Strengthen your resume for full-time employment or graduate school
Internships can be found throughout the year – fall, spring, and summer all provide internship possibilities! More and more employers are also listing remote internships which could be a perfect fit, especially during the school year.
Also remember that an experience doesn’t have to be labeled an “internship” for it to have value – lab and research student jobs, field work, course practicums, and campus employment connected to your career interests are all meaningful and rewarding experiences that provide similar benefits to an internship.
