It has been said that some of the most important lessons you’ll learn in college will take place outside of the classroom. This is an apt description of the all important college internship.
Most employers consider a college internship to be one of the most important factors when hiring recent college graduates for entry level positions. This makes sense. After all, book learning and theory only go so far. Providing practical training to an employee costs time and money.
The college internship helps mitigate this cost. A good internship will provide the student with hands on experience in his or her chosen field.
