Internships

Career-focused work experience

A student internship is a temporary position that focuses around on-the-job training. Internships allow opportunities for students to gain experience in a field, or determine interest in a particular career path.  An internship typically allows students to perform entry-level work and to better understand the structure and dynamics of different types of organizations.
