Internships and Projects
While many graduate students already have experience in the business world, internships can still play a key role if you wish to change your job function, change industries, or simply gain more hands-on experience.
As an intern, you gain workplace skills while extending your network. If you don’t have experience in your desired industry or role, you may find the transition from academics to work easier as a result of a targeted internship.
Internships may come in many shapes and sizes: credit and non-credit; paid and unpaid. Before taking an internship, consult your advisor to be sure that it fits both your career plan and your degree plan.
