Student looking through a microscope

There are plenty of reasons to participate in an internship.

Employers look for experience when reading the resume of a potential employee. A recent college grad with one or two internships might be more attractive than one without that work experience. Employers know that internships give students hands-on experience with workplace skills, challenges, and environments — experiences that make those students valuable employees.

Internships also give you the chance to try out a profession and collect references and professional contacts. In addition, you can get course credit.
