Both students and employers can agree that interns bring value to the table.
- Value for Students - Internships give students experience in their chosen career, provide great references for finding full-time employment, and can lead into an employment offer.
- Value for Companies - Internships can fill unmet needs and give companies the manpower to try out new ideas that might otherwise stay on the drawing table. Internships also help companies "test drive" potential employees and can serve as a recruitment strategy for school employers.
