 WHAT is an Internship?
Internships are typically 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 in their intended field. 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 to determine if the internship qualifies for academic credit. Students who work internships while in college-- are 10 x more likely to be hired by companies upon graduation. Internships are essential for young graduates with limited career experience!  Click here to read an article regarding the first two steps that should be taken in regards to an internship.
