When I started planning my senior year at Mercer University, I also began looking for an internship. Internships allow college students to immerse themselves in a particular field and can start them on a career path. Students can explore internships that spark their interest, challenge them and help them develop their skills and expertise.

Imagine walking into your new office on your first day at a new job. You look around and instead of rows of walled cubicles and closed conference rooms, you can see everyone’s faces, the open programs on their computers and the paperwork on their desks. Are you excited that you’ll be able to talk easily with your coworkers and ask questions when problems arise? Or are you worried about being scrutinized unfavorably when you don’t appear to be productive?
The value of an internship is immeasurable. The experiences and connections you make throughout your placement can help pave the way for your career and lead to future job offers. Pinpointing a company that not only has an internship available in your field of interest but, also gives you the opportunity to grow your skillset is crucial.
