“An internship is a great opportunity to enhance your skill set in a real-life environment. Sure, you want the work experience to add to your resume when looking for that first job. Use it also to learn more about the industry that interests you or the type of work you want to do,” said Greg Lammert, internship supervisor and Senior Account Supervisor, PR. “More than that, an internship can help form the foundation of your professional career. Developing a work ethic, learning how to work with others, showing initiative. Those are skills you can take forward into your first job and beyond, and that type of experience is immeasurable.”
