The dream for many employers is to hire experienced employees that require very little, if any training. This conflicts with reality, because many job seekers face the challenge of not having the necessary skills to find employment. It is a nasty catch! How do employers meet the market needs of today and prepare employees for tomorrows needs? How do job seekers gain the necessary experience to get employed? One solution is an internship program.
What is an Internship
An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in the professional fields they are considering for career paths and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.
