Internships are an important part of Experiential Learning. Simply put, having internship experience allows you to better understand prospective work environments and allows you to make networking connections as well as gain real world skills. Depending on your career goals, your internship experiences can vary widely. Employers value internship experiences and this may help to set you apart from other candidates when interviewing for an entry level position.
Students can explore career choices by utilizing online career resources or meeting with a career counselor. Drop in hours are available throughout most of the calendar year. Contact Career Services for more information.
