What are the benefits of participating in an internship, co-op, service-learning or research experience?
I am a hands-on person. I learn best from performing a duty or working. Being able to participate in these internships gives me an opportunity to try something new, get out of my comfort zone, and explore possible careers. These companies want me to get as much out of the internship as I can while helping them reach their goals as well. I’m making great contacts and boosting up my resume. It’s a win-win.
