An internship is a wonderful opportunity to gain practical, real-world experience in a particular job and/or industry field. According to a recent survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (2014) 60% of employers preferred hiring applicants with work experience gained through an internship or co-op opportunity. Below are suggested resources to use when searching for an internship.
