Internships can be rewarding in many ways even if they are not directly paid. As it is becoming harder and harder to apply to a job with just a college degree in this competitive economy, most companies are now looking for people with real world experience. This needed experience can be gained through working as an intern in one of many regional companies.
By fostering these relationships you gain valuable industry connections and possibly even a job offer after graduation.
