The overarching goal of higher education is to adequately prepare students to achieve success in their future careers. While facing a certain level of academic rigor and gaining important life skills are crucial aspects of career preparedness that students receive in college, more and more importance is being placed on the value of experiential learning. This is where internships play an important role. They help develop your professional aptitude, strengthen personal character, expand your resume, and provide a greater door to opportunity. By completing an internship, you will give yourself the broadest spectrum of opportunity when seeking and applying for jobs after college.
