Why is a Summer Internship Important For Undergraduates And Graduates?

Monika Markley | September.29.2021

No matter at the undergraduate or graduate level, a student’s first priority at university should be, well, their studies. From lectures and seminars to labs and projects, days are filled with class, homework, library study sessions, research, and tutors with the singular focus of excelling at subject matter.

Add in a part-time job or two and some extracurricular activities and there are just not enough hours in the day to add in a professional internship experience!

Consider that after graduation, without an internship, only 43.5% of students got a job offer according to College Recruiter in 2019. Because of this, planning and setting aside the time for an internship during the summer is crucial.
