Getting an Internship


Ashley Foley

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