Develop skills

Going to college or university is a critical step, but you  can greatly enhance your classroom learning by gaining real world  experience through internships. In addition to gaining great experience  to complete your classroom learning, internships allow you to develop your portfolio and make valuable industry contacts that can be essential to landing the ideal job upon graduation.

In today’s competitive job market, it’s “ what you know”  and  “who  you know”  that often makes the difference. Internships are a great way to address both of these issues at the same time.

You can also leverage other universities resources like your campus job search office or alumni organisation to find a valuable  position that will get you in the door and on your way to a career in a field of  your interest.
