Why are Internships so Important?
Internships create opportunities for employers and students to create real-life learning beyond the classroom walls to develop workforce readiness, technical and interpersonal skills. This experience is invaluable to the development of the students. This process allows students to explore career options, engage with employers, develop relationships and networking skills, learn about the functions of an organization, and connect classroom learning to employment and careers.
