All young adults, either in their senior year in high school or college need to apply for and get accepted into an internship program. Internships need to be researched before applying to them. Make it fun by finding companies you like and want to work for. Companies use internships to find potential full-time employees and to find out if these prospects have a good work ethic and fit in with their company’s culture/environment. The summer time is the perfect time to get this real world experience, before you get obligated to a company you careless about. This is also the time to find out if the company is the right fit for you and if you would like to commit a large part of your life working for a particular company.
