An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships are designed to enhance students' academic and personal development in preparation for careers. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable, real-life experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent. These experiences also give students the ability to build a network of professional contacts and cultivate mentoring relationships with professionals.
