It’s no secret that internships are one of the best ways to receive a full time job offer. Becoming a high performing intern is a fantastic way to improve your employment prospects, so many students consider the company as the most important criteria during their internship search. Internships can be a great way to get your foot in the door with a prestigious or desirable company.
Internships give you on-the-job experience, help you learn whether you and that industry are a good match and can provide you with valuable connections and references. Since students typically have less experience than full time employees, interns are usually exposed to a wide variety of tasks and responsibilities. This allows the intern to showcase their strengths by working on projects for various managers that work on different parts of the organizations. If an intern shows the manager or internship coordinator that they can be an asset in a specific role, on a particular team or within a department, then the intern has a higher probability of receiving a full time job offer. The student wanted to land a job at the company and showed they were willing to contribute to the company in any way possible.
