Internships are one of the best ways to connect academic learning with professional work. You’re exposed to the workplace, make valuable contacts, gain skills, and become more competitive in landing desirable jobs. Begin by asking yourself, (1) What type of work and setting do I want to pursue at graduation? and (2) How much experience is needed to secure an entry-level position in my target field?
There are different ways to find a great internship. Many organizations have long-standing, formalized internship programs. Others post internships as the need arises. If you don’t find what you’re looking for using the following sources, consider initiating your own internship in target organizations.
