Why should I participate in an internship?

Internships allow students to gain the necessary professional skills that allow you to integrate academic knowledge with real world application. Not only do internships provide you with experience to add to your resume, they also allow to gain a competitive edge in the job market. Employers typically favor recent college graduates that posses internship experience over those that do not. It is also common for employers to hire high performing and hard working interns because they are more familiar with your work.

Additionally, internships allow you to practice and develop skills sets that are aligned with your academic and professional goals. This gives you a chance to "try" a career path to better understand which career is right for you.
