    Why are internships important?

    According to a survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), nearly 50% of employers would like to see an internship on a students resume.

    An internship gives a student an opportunity to audition a job. It gives students the chance to ask themselves, Do I see myself working in this industry?

    The experience of obtaining the internship itself is part of the value of the experience.
