An internship is one of the best ways to gain real-world experience while you’re still in college. If you’re going to find a summer internship, its best to plan ahead and start looking early. Here are some resources and things to consider as you get started.
First Things First
Before you begin looking for an internship, think about your interests and objectives. What do you hope to gain from the experience? What type of work do you want to do and in what kind of organization? Are you looking for a paid internship or course credit? Maybe both?

Three Undergraduate Studies students were able to investigate majors and expand their perspectives with assistance from the Summer Exploration Grant. Although the recipients used the grant money for different experiences, they came to similarly enlightening conclusions about how to spend the rest of their time at The University of Texas and what their lives might look like after graduation.
