For college students, an internship is a major rite of passage during their studies. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 61 percent of the class of 2014 participated in at least one internship or co-op during college. Internships provide students real world work experience that can be crucial to their future success in securing a full-time job, they can also help students decide their career path by “test driving” different positions. Internships also provide networking opportunities and chances to boost a student’s academic studies.
