A summer internship provides the knowledge and skills required to become successful in a specific career field. The most amazing internship experiences are those that prepare students for the work they hope to do after graduating from college. Employers seek employees who have the experience required to start out in a new field. Employers also welcome new employees who have already had exposure to the field and understand the type of work they will be doing once they are hired.
Internships also provide opportunities to meet a large number of professionals currently working in the field are those experiences that give students the chance to make important professional connections that can last a lifetime.
