Internships and other work experience

Internships, mentorships, and volunteer work are all valuable career-building opportunities!

  • Internships are supervised, career-related learning opportunities that give students hands-on experience in an industry or field. Many academic departments offer (or require) internship programs as part of the course of study. And 9 out of 10 employers prefer hiring students who have internship experience!
  • AMP Mentorships pair a professional with a student for a semester-long, one-on-one learning experience
  • Volunteering helps others as it widens your personal experience.
