Why Do an Internship?
In a highly competitive job market, you will need to make yourself stand out among others. Since employers prefer to hire those who have career-related work experience, internships can be crucial to your job search. The experience you gain might not perfectly match your major or your chosen career path, but it will give you transferable skills, a notable work ethic, and a competitive edge. Your internship experience will also expose you to professionalism and allow you to observe how skills and ideas are applied in the real world.
