What are the benefits of choosing to spend your summer participating in an internship, co-op, service-learning or research experience?
It is important to learn the difference between school and the real world. With a summer internship you are able to link what you are learning in school to a career and also see what it’s like to work full time. Along with experience, networking and meeting new people also helps with finding a job after graduation.
