Internships provide an excellent setting for professional development, workplace discipline, subject-specific job experience, and networking opportunities.
An internship experience can help you explore and nurture your interests in a career field. At the same time, internships give you a valuable opportunity to further develop your skills so you’ll have a competitive edge and a network of professional connections to aid you in your future job searches.
