Internships are a valuable component and add perspective to the educational experience by providing students with the opportunity to immerse themselves into a work environment that may aid in future career decisions. Taking the time to look and explore options may net a good paying internship. Academic credit is available with a few internships. Internships may be paid or not, while co-op employment is always paid. Either experience provides full-time or part-time employment for the student.
There are many ways to secure an internship. Career Services, job fairs, direct contact, and student and faculty networks have all been successful methods of securing career experience.
