For most students, we do not fully know what we will be getting into when we decide on a specific major or career path. It can feel very scary when you first choose a major because you may not have a clear cut idea what type of work you will be involved in. Through an internship, you actually get a glimpse of what you will be getting yourself into.
I’ve been interning with SSFM Internationals, Inc. for almost a year now. During my internship experience, I am able to become familiar with the working schedule, the working equipment (plotters, printers, software, etc.), and terminologies used. This is very beneficial because it helped me determine if this was something I can see myself doing the rest of my life.
Interning means you have a better opportunity than most others because you’ve gotten that additional real-world experience that most college graduates do not have. It is a great foot in the door to your future!
