An internship is an opportunity offered by an employer to potential employees, called interns, to work at a firm for a fixed, limited period of time. Interns are usually undergraduates or students, and most internships last for any length of time between one week and 12 months.
Benefits & Advantages of Internships
1. You can gain work experience and transferable skills in a professional environment.
2. All students have their educational experience in common. What stands out to employers is if you ALSO have work experiences by the time you graduate. This automatically makes you more marketable; as you may require less training and are assumed to be able to handle more responsibilities. In addition to the specialized skills of your field, transferable skills are generally required at any job, e.g. communication/interpersonal skills, computer proficiency, and team work.
3. It could possibly earn course credit.
4. Some degree programs incorporate a work opportunity into a requirement for graduation by giving course credit for the work experience. Other programs have an internship as an elective course for credit. Contact your academic advisor for more information because earning credit varies by departments.
5. You can possibly earn money while studying.
6. You will be able to experience a prospective career path.
7. Most students enter college with an idea of a major or career path… and most students end up changing their minds. Exploring is a very important part of the academic process, and gaining a work experience is a great way for students to acquaint themselves with a field they are looking to learn about. By the time of graduation, the students have confidence that the degrees they are receiving are the right ones for them.
8. Gain practical experience, by applying methods and theories learned in classes.
9. Many people learn best by being hands on. But everyone can benefit from seeing the things that they have been learning in class, put to action; whether it’s in a chemistry research lab, a marketing development meeting, or a substance abuse counseling session.
10. Network with professionals in your field, for references and future job opportunities
11. It’s all about who you know. As a student intern, you are surrounded by professionals in the industry that you are seeking access to. It’s more than just about getting a grade, earning credit, or making money. This is an opportunity to learn from everyone around you, ask questions, and impress them with your eagerness. These people can be your future colleagues or can be the connection to your first job.
12. Develop new skills and refine others.
13. Learn your strengths and weaknesses by creating learning objectives and receiving feedback from your
supervisor. This is a unique learning opportunity that you may never have again as a working adult. Embrace the mistakes that you’ll make and the many things that you won’t know. Ask questions, observe, and take risks.
14. You will gain confidence in your abilities
15. Practice makes perfect. If you’ve learned about a specific technique in the classroom, you’re able to test it out in the world of work. Then, you’ll be much more equipped with the technique.
