What Is An Internship?
Internships are an excellent opportunity for you to obtain work experience that relates to your academic major and career interest.  Adding value to your collegiate experience allows you to use academic knowledge in the real world while earning academic credit hours.  Most importantly, you'll develop core skills and personal attributes applicable to the professional workplace.
