When you’re just starting out in an industry, it helps to have more on your resume than just your degree. Interning and having real world, hands-on experience in a professional environment can give you a big advantage over your competition.
Internships have become an essential tool for gaining valuable work experience before graduation. Talk to your advisor about how an internship in your major would fit in with your academic courses and contribute to your learning.
