Why should you do an internship?

An internship placement is a capstone experience to your college education.  Here you can apply classroom knowledge to a specific work setting.

It is an opportunity to explore a career.  You will learn the mechanics of a facility, which will help you  when you are interviewing for a job later.  You can be sure you enjoy that career.

You will meet people who will be connections to post-graduation jobs.  Some of these people might be references for you later, too.
