Get experience before graduation

Research by the National Association of Colleges and Employers has demonstrated a strong positive relationship between a student having an internship and an increased probability of that student receiving a full-time job offer prior to graduation.

Internships are designed to be exploratory — a great chance for you to explore a potential career field or organization before committing to a full-time job. Internships can be paid or unpaid. The most effective internships are project-based and connected to your field of study or career interests. Other ways to get experience in your chosen career path before graduation include both externships and research experience.
