Internships allow you to connect the information that you learn in the classroom to real world experiences. Students from any academic level and in any major can benefit from the experience because internships familiarize you with the work environment, give you the opportunity to meet professionals in your field of interest, and sometimes lead to full-time employment. Internships can take place anytime during the year; fall, spring, winter, and summer.
