Working in an internship provides you with the opportunity to gain exposure to your chosen career field, explore the career possibilities within that field and to develop and enhance skills needed in your industry. In addition, having an internship on your resume provides prospective employers with insights into your capabilities. A professional within the industry of your major supervises all internships.
