A degree is just a piece of paper. More and more young adults are pursuing a college degree. As students graduate college, most of those college graduates become jobless or work at an underpaying job. In this brutal job market, a degree is just not going to cut it. If students do not complete at least one internship in college or do something to better themselves and set them apart from the millions of resumes companies are receiving every day, then that college graduate might just be making your caramel macchiato.

College students, if you want to gain experience, make connections, and potentially land a full time career, complete at least one internship.

  1. Gain Experience

Without experience, you will be caught in a vicious circle of unemployment post-graduation. A vicious cycle indeed. Most people don’t realize they need experience until it’s too late. The time to look for jobs that will gain you experience for careers is as soon as you step up into college. This is the time you get that entry level job or internship so you can gain experience for the future. It’s a process. No one is going to climb the ladder overnight, it takes time, skills, AND experience.

  1. Make Connections

Sad to say, it’s not always about what you know, it’s about who you know that can put you on the right path or get your foot in the door. Who knows maybe the internship you just scored or playing flag football at the YMCA when you were seven years old was the best decision of your life and the reason you are sitting behind a desk instead of a jobs listed newspaper.

  1. Proving your value

Nice! You just landed an internship that applies directly what you want to do in life, or at least very similar. Now it’s time to prove your work. Always do extra when it comes to your internship for you’re there to learn, and gain experience for the future. The more you do the more you can add to your tool belt.

  1. Test Run Your field 

An internship is a great way to learn skills and prepare for the future… but what if you don’t want that future? After completing the internship, you might realize that you want nothing to do with that field! Think about all the time and money you just saved.

  1. Land a full time Job

If you do well during the internship chances are that company will want to hire you because you already know their system, you worked well in their environment, and they can save oodles of money on training.

  1. Have Fun

Internships can be a blast! A lot of them have extraordinary programs that are designed to teach you many skills in a fun, completive environment. Is that something you really want to miss out on, fun?
