For college students, an internship is essential now more than ever. Even though education after high school is important, and higher levels of education typically translate into advanced careers, a degree alone doesn’t directly mean skilled knowledge within the workplace, and students often lack the hands-on job experience that is needed to gain employment.
“Take a moment to think about those who lost their lives that day and then reflect on where you were and what you were doing when this happened and how much has changed in your life because of it.” – Steve Pepper, student veteran specialist at Moraine Park
