Internships are one of the most important ways students gain experience and start to make contacts within their field. Work experience at a respected company or organization, especially if it’s related to field you might pursue in college, will only strengthen your college application. It’s a great way to stand out from the crowd. An internship will also help you understand how a professional organization operates.
Students who are interested should speak with their counselor, prepare a resume and have appropriate documentation, which includes: passport/photo ID, social security card and working papers (if under 18 years old).
