What is an Intern

An intern is typically a student looking to gain valuable practical work experience in their field of study. Internships give real world experiences to help students gain a deeper understanding of their chosen career. Some internships are paid, while others can be non-paid. Internships are generally a temporary arrangement for employment with a set start and end date and in some cases are required by a college.
