The value of an internship
Internships are a key element of securing a desirable job after graduation. The skills you will gain and the experiences you have are what will set you apart from other graduates. Your internship experience will allow you to practice what you've learned in theory and immerse yourself in the culture of the communication industry.
Internship opportunities are valuable because they help you narrow your career options and they give you distinct advantage over the competition. Take advantage of meaningful internship opportunities, ones that help you develop personally and professionally. The best opportunities boost your resume and portfolio, provide opportunities for networking, result in excellent references, often lead to permanent employment, and make the transition from your academic life to your professional life much smoother.
As you gain experience interviewing and interning, you should also gain confidence in your abilities and discover your personal brand. The more you experience you gain the more prepared you will be when seeking permanent employment after graduation.
