An internship is a short-term, hands-on learning experience that allows a student to explore a particular career field. Internship experiences benefit both the students and employers involved: for students, internships are a way of gaining experience and knowledge for a future career goal; for employers, internships provide an extra pair of hands for projects, fresh ideas, and access to potential future employees. Think of it like hiring a short-term employee for a sneak peek into your organization—whom you might even choose to hire after the “test run”.
Internships are becoming the key to jobs after college. In 2012, 56% of students who had an internship in the U.S. were offered a full time position. Employers have come to realize a great perk of an internship is the ‘extended interview’ opportunity it affords.
