An internship is an opportunity offered by an employer to potential employees, called interns, to work at a firm for a fixed, limited period of time. Interns are usually undergraduates or students, and most internships last for any length of time between one week and 12 months.

The Random House Dictionary defines the word as:

“Any official or formal program to provide practical experience for beginners in an occupation or profession.”

 

Why Do An Internship?

 

Results from a recent survey conducted by Graduate Advantage prove that internships do create jobs for graduates. It showed that 81% of interns are now employed and 74% of those are either in permanent employment or are on a long term contract. Of these, 68% believe their internship helped them to gain their current position and an impressive 33% are still working with their internship organization. http://www.graduateadvantage.co.uk/blog/2011/09/what-is-an-internship/
