Why do I need an Internship?
One of the recurring themes in any job search is the lack of work experience. A lot of students ask – “Where do I get experience if no one is willing to hire me?” The answer is simple: Get an internship! Students planning to enter the permanent work force should complement their academic preparation with a range of other experiences, such as study abroad, community service, undergraduate research experiences, participation in sports and other student organisations, membership in pre professional organisations, and internships.
An internship offers you the chance to learn by doing in a setting where you are supervised by a work-place professional, and have the opportunity to achieve your own learning goals, without the responsibilities of being a permanent employee. An internship also offers you the opportunity to work with someone who can become a mentor for you – not only in the internship, but throughout your career.
