Colleges grant degrees, but not job guarantees. Having relevant experience in this competitive job market is critical.
Your son/daughter can sample career options by completing internships and experimenting with summer employment opportunities and volunteer work.
Why an internship?
- Employers are interested in communication, problem-solving, and administrative skills, which can be developed through internships.
- Employers look for experience on a student’s resume and often hire from within their own internship programs.
- Having a high GPA is not enough.
- A strong recommendation from an internship supervisor may tip the scale of an important interview in the student's favor.
