Explore your career opportunities and find out what you’re passionate about through internship experiences. Doing one or more internships will help you "test drive" a possible career path and clarify your career goals after graduation. It’s the perfect way to connect your academic experience with professional work and gives you a competitive edge for employment after graduation.
