Participating in an internship is a great way to put classroom learning into practical experience. While engaged in the supportive environment of experiential learning you can test career goals, enhance professional skills, develop self-reliance, self-esteem, and responsibility. Furthermore, experiential opportunities encourage networking with professionals and will provide increased marketability for employment after graduation.
