Value of Internship
Why Internship?
    Have an Edge in
    the Job Market

Employers are usually more
concerned with your work
experience than your qualifications
and internships are often the only
way to get the work experience you
need to secure a job, so they're a
vital part of your resume.
An internship can be seen as the
pinnacle of your undergraduate
education and give you the chance
to use the skills you've learned in
the classroom in a real-world
setting. It’s a chance to prove the
worth of your qualifications and to
show that you can perform in the
role you've been given.
