What is an internship?
According to the National Association for Colleges and Employers (NACE) "an internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skill development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent."
Why get an internship?
A recent survey by the NACE reported that 65% of bachelor degree students from the class of 2015 participated in an internship - the highest percentage recorded since they began surveying in 2007. Both students and employers seem to agree that internships provide an advantageous educational and professional development experience. 75% of the employers surveyed by the NACE said they prefer to hire job candidates who have relevant work experience. The QTM Navigator seeks to assist students in obtaining valuable experiences.
