Nothing prepares you for the world of work more than on-the-job learning.
That is why approximately three out of four business students choose to complete at least one internship.
As an intern, you'll:
- Apply your academic knowledge in real world settings
- Learn to function in the professional arena
- Exercise team-building skills
- Enhance your networking and overall relationship development skills
- Narrow the focus of your career plan
- Be able to better evaluate entry-level positions after graduation
- Impress prospective employers with your unique skills
Internships are similar to extended job interviews. Many recent SWSB graduates have received job offers at higher starting salaries as a result of their internships.
The Sigmund Weis School of Business internship program is available to all business students. Internships usually take place during the summer, but can also occur during the school year. While they are designed to provide academic credit, some are paid.
Lauren Tishkevich’s internship with L.L. Bean was a homecoming of sorts. The rising senior returned to her home state of Maine and to the company where her mother worked for 18 years.
Erin Byrne ’17, who participated in Prudential Financial’s prestigious summer finance internship in Newark, N.J., praised the company for providing networking opportunities “since the first day of the internship.”
Today's career paths are full of twists and turns, so you'll need the skills to last a lifetime of job searches and career shifts.
