  • An internship is a part-time or full-time job during the academic year or the summer months in which you receive supervised, practical training in your field of study.
  • Internships are usually related to your academic and career goals, and may serve as a precursor to professional employment.
  • Some internships feature very close supervision by a mentor in an apprenticeship-like relationship.
  • You will perform work for the internship site just as a regular employee would, although generally with closer supervision. And, just like an employee, you should report on time and as scheduled, taking your duties and assignments seriously.
