Knowing if you will love a career should not wait until after graduation. Internships will help you discover whether a chosen career is right for you and then allow you to test, apply, and hone your skills. Given that 80% of employers view internships as recruiting tools, an internship is a great way to make connections and have a real impact on your future career.
