Internships for Students, Graduates, and Career Changers
An internship is a pre-professional work experience that provides students, recent graduates, and those seeking to change careers with the opportunity to gain experience in a particular career field. For students, internships also supplement academic classes and, in some cases, earn college credit. For recent graduates and individuals considering a career change an internship is a way to try a new job without making a permanent commitment. An internship is a way to test the waters in a variety of career fields, to gain “real-life” experience, and a way to decide on – or opt out – of a certain vocation.
Internships for Graduates
If you’re a recent graduate looking for some work experience or are interested in a career change, consider an internship to get an insider’s view of a new career field. It will allow you to gain experience and to decide if this is something you really want to do. Plan your internship search just as you would a job search, but, specify when you apply that you’re interested in an internship rather than a permanent position.
