While many graduate students already have experience in the business world, internships can still play a key role if you wish to move within jobs, change industries or simply gain more hands-on experience.
As an intern, you gain workplace skills while extending your network. You may find the transition from academics to work easier as a result of your internship.
When you become an intern, you can gain:
- Greater certainty about your career choices
- Greater confidence in the value and professional quality of your skills and abilities
- Better understanding of what it takes to find a job and what it takes to succeed
