What Is a Summer Internship?
Summer internships are usually six weeks to six months long and follow the college semesters.
Depending on when the student gets out of college, a summer internship usually starts in May or June and continues through August. The most common timeframe for summer internships is to begin right after Memorial Day and to run through the end of the first week of August.
Internships provide students with a look into the real-world. They get a front row seat to a potential career choice. An internship provides a hands-on learning experience for new comer. They go into the internship thinking they want to work at a specific company or in a specific industry – they come out of the internship either confirming those thoughts or deciding to pursue something completely different.
