An internship is a great way to gain perspective into a prospective career path and decide, for certain, whether the profession you are considering is the correct one.
As an intern, you will get hands-on experience and will learn valuable information from someone already working in the career field with years of knowledge and experience that will likely directly correlate with a job that you apply for in your future. Another perk of becoming an intern is receiving school credits. I spoke with a fellow intern Josh G. about what aspect of his internship helped him most. He replied “I pretty much already knew that my career path was focused on production and that it is really what I want to do. Learning the ins and outs of how production works completely solidified my confidence and I now know that my future is going to involve something that I enjoy doing.”
There is great news for any student interested in becoming an intern: It is quite easy! All a student needs to do to get started is contact one of the three internship coordinators online at spcollege.edu/studentinterns. From there a student can choose from a wide range of internship experiences that can put you one step closer to a desired job.
By submerging yourself into an internship, you will quickly find out if you need to rethink your career path or continue and gain the confidence everyone needs to pursue their dream. There is no reason not to take advantage of an internship because, in either scenario, you learn if a career is or is not right for you.
