Gain experience for your career

An internship is a well-planned learning experience that combines career development and academic learning. Internships may be paid or unpaid, and some may be available for academic credit. However, an internship is not a chance to get academic credit for your current part-time job. Unlike many part-time jobs, internships should help you apply your classroom learning in a career setting.

In today’s competitive job market, internships are one of the best ways to test-drive your career. 

An internship can:

  • Connect your academic studies to the real world
  • Teach you about yourself
  • Provide valuable information about the world around you
