An internship or cooperative education position gives you valuable hands-on experience in the field you have chosen. This kind of work experience can help you confirm your career choice and is an asset when you are seeking employment after graduation. A career-related internship, summer job, or part-time job can also help you decide on a career path if you have not yet made a choice. Your advisor and/or your major department are good places to start when looking for internship information opportunities in the department office or on the department web site:
