Internships

An internship provides you with the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to real world work situations in a professional environment. You need to be able to show an employer that you have experience in your area of study, even for entry level positions. This is why internships are so important. It is an opportunity for you to develop your skillset, build knowledge, and help you show employers that you are prepared for the workforce.
