Internships may be a good opportunity to get some real-work experience. There are paid and unpaid internships. Some are for a summer, while others last throughout the school year.
Although many internships are local, others offer work locally. For example, you could have a job at a TV station, or you could teach children guitar in Costa Rica.
An internship can show you what it’s like to have a boss, go meetings, meet deadlines, and complete work on a deadline. Internships also introduce you to mentors who can help shape what career you go into.
