Anderson Internship Programs

Internships provide opportunities to experiment and pursue careers that match academic and personal interests. There are many benefits to completing an internship including increased job confidence, the chance to develop industry-specific abilities and the opportunity to apply the skills you've learned in the classroom in a real-world setting. Internships also increase the likelihood of building professional networking contacts and mentoring relationships. Internships help students become viable, experienced job applicants when seeking employment after graduation. In fact, many employers consider internship experience in the hiring process, and often look to their own interns as the best potential candidates for full-time positions.
