Internship experience is an excellent way to begin your career.

Whether getting your foot in the door at your dream job, or using as a stepping stone to discovery, internships are the way to go.

What is an internship? Basically, a short-term work experience that emphasizes hands-on learning.

Internships provide context for what you have learned as a student, putting that knowledge to good use. As an intern, you apply your academic work to a professional setting. By doing this, you are free to explore certain career opportunities.
