Why internships are beneficial to all students

If you are thinking of forgoing a college internship before you graduate, you may want to think again. Internships provide great real-world experience to students and help supplement material learned in the classroom. And if that is not enough to get you started on your internship search, consider this – internships make you more desirable to employers. The knowledge you gain helps you develop your skills and even teaches you how to succeed in the professional world, traits employers look for in future hires.

As the current marketing intern at RISLA, I know first hand how internships can help prepare you for full-time work. There are many things that students don’t encounter in the classroom, which is one of many reasons why you should get an internship before you graduate.

The below infographic (I created this during my internship – see, preparation!) will help you know what to expect beforehand and be prepared to succeed.
