Internship Tips and Exploration


“Students’ major and GPA, as well as the college they graduated from, matter less to employers than do internships and firsthand experience.” —National Association of Colleges and Employers

Internships provide students the opportunity to gain valuable experience, develop social capital, explore career fields, and make connections in professional fields. In addition, internships serve as a significant recruiting opportunity for employers, providing them with the opportunity to guide and evaluate potential candidates.

Benefits of Interning

  • Explore career options related to your interest, values, skills and personality
  • A student will gain career readiness skills, including self-confidence
  • Gather insight into a particular industry or organizational culture
  • Develop related work experience and apply classroom learning to the internship
  • Establish connections and build a network of contacts

Consider the skills you may want to develop:

  • What skills will be beneficial in the field you wish to pursue?
  • What skills do you lack, or require improvement?
  • What environment will provide you with the opportunity to develop these skills?
  • We suggest you begin your search 3-6 months prior to an internship start date.
