What Is an Internship?

“Internships are short-term, on-the-job learning experiences designed to allow students to apply knowledge gained in the classroom to a real-world, professional work setting.”  – Intern Bridge

Internships are a great way to “test out” and gain experience in a career field. Another benefit is that they can lead to networking or employment opportunities. You should start looking for an internship well in advance. Here are some resources to help get you started! Learn More About Where Albright Students Have Interned.
