An internship is a short-term work opportunity at a company or organization that allows students to get some entry-level work experience in a specific field. Students oftentimes seek out winter break or summer internships. Some students even work during the semester, gaining both work experience and academic credit. Internships are available to high school, college, and graduate students. Though the main objective is to get work experience, some students may find a paid opportunity that helps to generate income or pay for college. That's a real win-win for any student.Interns' learning opportunities aren't limited to how to do a specific job or role. Rather, they're learning how to be an employee that can transition into any field or setting. Invaluable skills learned during an internship include communication, teamwork, professionalism, and so much more. The only way to learn many of these is through hands-on experience.
