In this competitive job market, internships are essential. Co-ops and internships provide you with an opportunity to experience the world of professional work and explore your career choices. In addition to developing and refining the career-readiness skills that make you a marketable job seeker, internships allow you to beef up your resume AND expand your professional network.

Why is it important to build your professional network? According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, at least 70% of all jobs are filled through networking. Co-ops and internships can lead to new and exciting opportunities that may not have otherwise been available.
