An internship is a structured learning experience in a work setting that gives students the opportunity to learn about a career interest and gain valuable knowledge and experience in a particular field.

In an internship, students work as employees, but the purpose is to receive mentoring, supervision and training. Students that earn academic credit for an internship will utilize and develop the NACE Career Readiness Competencies in their experience.
