Your Competitive Edge!
Internships are an excellent way to keep your competitive edge. Interns serve as a pool for potential employees and offer fresh and innovative ideas that add value to your business.
What is an Internship?
An internship is a paid or unpaid, closely monitored, highly structured, strategic, well defined, project-related program that provides professional work experience outside of the classroom environment. An internship merges academic, personal development and career exploration in one. Internships are typically part-time and can last three or more months but can also last for several years. Although interns are typically learners/trainees, an internship will combine academic and real world experiences providing meaningful, professional work assignments that meet the intern’s learning goals and objectives.
