Internships are short-term opportunities to gain entry-level work experience. Interns usually work alongside a specific team within a company, learning from seasoned professionals and trying out different aspects of the job. Rather than leading their own projects, interns usually complete smaller tasks to support larger organizational initiatives.
College students and recent graduates typically fill intern positions, though some are open to people already in the workforce. Internships offer a chance to gain experience in a new field before applying for a full-time position.
Internships let you try different responsibilities at different kinds of organizations. If you are unsure of your professional goals, pursuing multiple internships while completing your degree can teach you about the day-to-day realities of various careers. This firsthand experience can help you narrow your preferences before you graduate and embark on a job search.
A great employer ensures you have plenty of learning opportunities during an internship, exposing you to new aspects of the field while offering mentorship and support. You can participate in large projects and assist people with essential functions of the organization.
