What is an internship?

An internship is a short term opportunity to provide practical experience in an occupation or career field. An internship provides students or those interested in a career change, an opportunity to "test the waters" and gain experience in a career while developing their professional network.

As you prepare to look for an internship, think about your personal goals. Why do you want an internship? What do you hope to learn by completing an internship? These resources will help you determine your internship goals, develop a search strategy and maximize your internship experience.
