One brief look-in:
"While a student, you'll learn all the theories and study great people in your field. It's all great and wonderful to do nothing but dream and do mock projects. An internship in the 'real world' will allow you to put the theories to the test and to do real work. Also, you'll learn about office politics, how people make money in your profession and hopefully pick up a mentor. Things that the university can't/won't teach you."So get out there and get one! ;) Seriously, I have seen many students turn around their college career for the better on the strength of a single intership. I can not stress enough their importance.
