Internships are wonderful opportunities for students to learn more about their chosen professional fields by doing real-world work. An on-campus internship (OCI) is an opportunity for you to put into practice the things you are learning in the classroom. In addition, the students learn about actual work place environments and about a specific employer. Also, the employer gets to see the work ethic, talents, skills, and personality of a potential employee. This is truly a win-win situation. Visit the web site to learn more.
