Gaining Experience Through Internships

An internship is a paid or unpaid work experience in a professional field of your choice. Internships are important for the following reasons:

  • Gain exposure to a particular field.
  • Learn about your own likes, dislikes, interests, values, and work environments that you prefer.
  • Build your skills, experience, and resume.
  • Attain the soft skills necessary to be successful in the workplace.
  • Expand your network of contacts and gain professional references.
  • Develop insight into what skills, abilities, and qualities employers want.
