- Paid or unpaid
- For credit and not-for-credit
- Self-directed or mentor-led
Why do an Internship?
In addition to exploring careers and developing professionally, internships are an opportunity to "try-out" a career and network and develop contacts. Some mutual benefits:
- Allows a company that you are actively investigating to evaluate you
- Your internship may provide a "foot in the door"
According to NACE 53% of Employers converted Interns into Full-Time employees.
