Apply your skills in the workplace
Get your foot in the door and gain invaluable experience. Internships allow you to apply your academic and career readiness skills in a real-world work setting.
Internships are generally offered to students in college, and sometimes high school, to give them hands-on experience in the workplace.
Over the course of a few weeks or months, you’ll experience the day-to-day aspects of a profession, learn new skills, and gain exposure to the norms and professional expectations of the working world.
From preparing your application to practicing your interviewing skills to landing an internship, every part of the experience is a learning opportunity, giving you insight into what it’s like to enter the working world.
Internships also allow you to meet people in your industry, network with potential job contacts and talk to professionals about what they enjoy about their career.
