WHAT is An Internship?
Internships are typically one-time work or service experiences related to the student’s major or career goal. The internship plan generally involves students working in professional settings under the supervision of practicing professionals. Internships can be paid or unpaid, and the student could possibly receive academic hours credit for performing the internship. Once you find the internship lead that you are interested in, contact your advisor/professor from your discipline, or career services to see if the internship qualifies for academic credit. Interns get hired much more often by companies after graduation. Internships are essential for young graduates with limited career experience!
