“Internships can be extremely beneficial for both interns and employers in terms of education, experience and project work”
Everyone has started out in business one way or another, but some have had the opportunity to learn early on through an internship experience. An internship is oftentimes the first time an individual is being exposed to the work place and expected to actively participate in it, too. How much the intern is able to learn throughout the internship experience is often contingent on an engaging supervisor to oversee their progress on specific projects and offer advice from beginning to end.
