Why are internships so great?

Internships are about gaining valuable experience that will help you throughout your career. If you are lucky enough, you also have a mentor who has been where you are and wants to show you what you need to know and prepares you for that first full-time job.

Today’s job market is hyper-competitive making the scramble to get your foot on the first rung of the ladder as arduous as the battle to secure a CEO position.  One way to gain a comparative advantage over other job seekers, and attain valuable work experience, is to participate in an internship.  

An internship is an exceptional opportunity to fast-track your skills and competencies. Not only will an internship provide you with a chance to work alongside industry professionals, but also enable you to apply learnings in a functioning HTM workplace.” – Dr. Thompson
