Career readiness in today’s economic climate may look different than it has in previous years. College internships provide several foundational skills required for a successful career in any field, no matter the job market. Regardless of your area of study or the industry you hope to enter, potential employers look for applicants who can hit the ground running, are able to learn quickly and work efficiently.
The competitive placements in all of our career fields ensure students develop confidence and professional poise, allowing them to thrive in any environment. Those who complete internships during college enter the workforce with the knowledge they have successfully applied their knowledge in professional settings, and without the uncertainty that plagues many recent grads.
Of course, interns also develop skills in public speaking and giving presentations, two essential abilities in any role. They problem solve, and develop creative solutions that make them valuable members of the teams they join as well as outstanding applicants for full-time roles.
