A competitive edge
Internships help supplement classroom studies with practical experience. Moreover, they prepare students for prospective employment, and occasionally, earn credit towards their degrees. In addition to giving students an idea of how the workplace operates, internships provide students with a competitive edge when seeking employment. Obtaining work experience during college often results in more job offers, a higher salary, and more frequent promotions. Many interns are also offered permanent positions from their employers.
