The Benefits of Internships

"Experience required." This is a common phrase on many job postings. However, many students and recent graduates don't have professional or industry-specific experience.

So, how can you get the experience you need to land a job in your field? By interning! Internships are the perfect way to gain practical experience and apply what you’ve learned in the classroom. 

If you are still trying to decide on a career path, working as an intern is an excellent way to explore various careers.

Internships come in all different “shapes and sizes”. They can be fulltime, part-time, for credit or non-credit, paid or unpaid, but the goal is the same: gaining experience!

Finding an internship is just like the job search process. It takes an excellent resume, solid interviewing skills and networking. 

If you need help with these skills, Rio Salado College offers Creative Job Hunting (CPD 102AC) as a two-credit course. The Counseling department is also available by appointment to discuss your career goals and to offer guidance on how to find an internship.

Now you can earn college credits toward Rio Salado’s many Business and Public Administration programs through our new Internship Program.
