For Profit Company Internships

For-profits internships are an essential part of many students’ college careers. The best for- profit internship provides an opportunity to gain real-world experience while fostering and developing professionalism and network building. Internships can be full-time (usually summer) or part-time/ parallel assignments during the fall and the spring semesters. While industry specific, most for-profit internships are paid and in some instances may even include housing and/or flight arrangements. Some things to consider while contemplating the “right fit” for your career goals are; the size of the organization, the product or service, and the company’s values (are they similar to yours? ). Companies that have a track record of hiring their interns into full-time opportunities are probably a wise choice.
