What Is An Internship and Why Do One?

An internship is a supervised, real-world learning experience related to your major or area of career interest. 

Internships allow you to:

  • explore a career field and determine if it is a good fit for your skills and interests.
  • form relationships with professionals who may help you connect to other companies, industries or experiences of interest.
  • demonstrate work-related knowledge and skills which will increase your marketability for future internships and full-time positions.

According to NACE Job Outlook 2018 survey: 

"Employers cited internship experience with the organization as the top factor influencing their decision when choosing between two otherwise equally qualified candidates, followed by whether the candidate has internship experience within the hiring organizations's industry."
