What Is An Internship?
Internships are valuable experiences that increase your chances of being selected for full-time jobs. Internships are typically short-term work or service experiences related to the student’s major or career goals. An internship generally involves students working in professional settings under the supervision of practicing professionals. Internships can be paid or unpaid, and the student may or may not receive academic credit for performing the internship. Once you find a company or organization that you are interested in, contact your advisor, professor, or career services to see if the internship qualifies for academic credit. Interns are more likely to be hired by companies after graduation. Internships are essential for young graduates with limited career experience! Just one resource-- across the US here!
