Students and alumni
Internships allow students to gain real-world experience outside of the classroom, giving them access to learn more about an organization and develop industry contacts. These opportunities often give students the chance to be considered for full-time positions. Almost 60 percent of 2012 college graduates who participated in paid internships received at least one job offer, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers.

Choosing the right internship
Narrow your career interests. Target possible fields through informational interviews and research. Use resources at the SCAD office for career and alumni success.
Creating a learning contract
A learning contract clarifies expectations and enables employers to understand how they can nurture your professional growth. Defining goals can guarantee that you gain the most from the internship.
Secrets to a successful internship
Set up regular meetings with your supervisor to discuss your progress. If a scheduled meeting is not feasible, check in periodically with your supervisor to ask questions and solicit feedback.
