An internship gives students real-world experience in a professional setting. This practical training allows students to develop and improve a range of skills they will need in the work force.  The hands-on experience they gain helps to build their resume and make them more marketable.

Top 5 Reasons Internships are Important

1) The site the student intern at might turn into their future career.

2) Hands on Learning - Students gain hand on skills they can’t gain in a classroom.

3) Confidence - internships allow the student  to learn a job in an educational setting so when it’s time to go into the work force the student has experiences he or she can trust.

4) Employers want employees that have experience and internships are a great way to gain experience and education.

5) Establish relationships - The people students will work with will help them grow in their chosen field and may become their future co-workers, internships will allow the students to build relationships with professionals while still in school.
