Internships are temporary work experiences typically designed for students and recent graduates to gain practical work experience in their field of study or interest.
During an internship, young people are able to apply their theoretical knowledge to real-world situations, develop new skills, and gain hands-on experience in their chosen field. Internships also provide an opportunity to network with professionals in their field, learn about industry trends, and potentially secure future employment opportunities.
Internships can be paid or unpaid, full-time or part-time, and can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months. Many employers offer internships to young people as a way to assess potential future employees, and as a way to train and mentor the next generation of professionals in their industry.
