What is an internship?

Internships are short employment opportunities, paid and unpaid, that allow students to “test-drive” an employment opportunity before commiting to making it a lifetime career.

Internships offer you the opportunity:

  • to learn more about a specific job or employment track;
  • to understand more about a professional job environment;
  • to build relationships with people that can share information and insight; and
  • to provide a space to build professional and personal confidence.

Employers are more willing to consider students as an applicant if you participated in an internship before, during, or after college. Internships can also add value to graduate admissions essays and applications, which can improve your admittance chances into a program.
