Applied Learning & Internships
Making the Most of Your Internship
Internships and applied learning help students to build skills that enable them to bridge the gap between college and the workforce.
In a recent study conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 74% of employers shared that they preferred to hire students with relevant work experience. For college students, an internship or other applied learning experiences can provide relevant experience and allow you to develop the skills that will set you apart as you look to build your career.
