Internship Programs

An internship gives you practical experience and hands-on training in the field. As an intern you may work as part of a team, providing value to the overall organization as you gain familiarity with the position. Some interns are mentored by executives and have the opportunity to present to a group of their peers or senior-level individuals on the outcomes of their special projects.

Internships are a great way to build your professional network, garner valuable experience, use feedback to refine your performance, and demonstrate competency and transferrable skills. Today's employers are savvy about seeking job applicants with prior internship experience.
