STEM Internships

“A recent study found that employers extended job offers to 70% of their interns.” — NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers)

What is an internship? An internship is an on-the-job learning experience in which you may be provided opportunities to learn the ropes of a career-field while working full- or part-time. Interns traditionally perform entry-level tasks while taking part in skills development activities as part of the internship experience. Some internships are paid while others are on a volunteer basis.
