Internships are an opportunity to make your resume stand out and gain valuable experience in the field. Internships are competitive and difficult to get, so do it right.
Why take an Internship?
Internships will help you learn skills that will translate into a job when you graduate. Treat an internship like a real job. This means showing up on time, dressing professionally, and conducting yourself as if you were working at the company full-time.
In addition to doing well in school and getting good grades, internships are essential for any senior looking for a good job after graduation.
It’s Mutually Beneficial
Internships are a great way for students to get real-world experience and build their professional network. Companies benefit from interns by having an additional resource throughout the year, in addition to their full-time employees.
However, it’s important for both parties to know how an internship should work. A good intern understands how to conduct themselves professionally, and knows how not to mess up with their responsibilities. A good company/employer on the other hand ensures that the interns are getting essential skills that will prepare them in real-world situations.
