Internships play a crucial role in student professional development. They provide real-world, hands-on experience and the opportunity to network and learn from working professionals.

Why intern?

Whether paid or unpaid, for credit or not, internships help you build your resume, master time and resource management, assimilate the skills you develop in the classroom and — in some cases — lead to employment.
