Why get an internship?

An internship provides you an opportunity to experience career fields that match your academic and personal interests. You can then use that experience to make important decisions about your career future. In addition, all internships provide opportunities to build skills in communication, time management and team dynamics- all skills highly regarded by employers. Internships look amazing on your resume and they represent your ability to be a responsible employee. Some schools even require students to complete internships before graduation.

I worked for on their learning and development team in South Florida. I was able to make great friends within the internship program, learn about ecommerce, and play with a LOT of dogs.
