Experience counts!

Internship experiences allow businesses to make a valuable contribution to the future work force. Using these programs, employers can identify and develop eager-to-learn students into potential new hires, reduce training costs, address workforce diversity goals, and evaluate a potential new hire in the workplace. Through internships, businesses help students integrate classroom theory with practice.
