FAQWhat are some benefits of internships and student work experience?
In addition to potential wages earned, student work and internship experience is valuable for exploring fields of work which you may wish to enter after graduation. Experience develops new skills and strengthens existing skills. Work experience helps you establish professional contacts in a potential field of interest. You will be able to demonstrate work setting accomplishments in your resume.
When is a good time to start looking for an internship?Most internships will state minimum qualifications to apply. Most high school internships require senior status with a minimum G.P.A. For college, the second semester of your freshman year is not too soon. Allow yourself at least one semester of academic study to adjust to the rigors of college life. Then, depending on your major, GPA, and course load requirements, you may be ready to intern. Remember that your academic work is always your first priority. It's probably best to begin your internship search the semester prior to your desired placement.
