Marketing Eye

Internships are a great way to gain firsthand experience in a professional environment. They allow you to integrate classroom knowledge you have learned throughout schooling or university with practical application and skills in a professional environment. Internships will enable you to gain relevant skills in your chosen industry as well as give you a taste of the industry and get a better idea of whether a career in the particular field is for you. This gives you a valuable chance at career exploration as you can spend a short period (generally 4-12 weeks) getting firsthand what the industry is like and whether it is for you.
