You will set goals and have periodic check-ins with your mentor to ensure you are accomplishing what you set out to learn, and have opportunities to tour job sites and shadow employees outside of your area of focus.
Selecting the right internship is critical to your success. Our interns regularly return, many transitioning to full-time positions.
