Internship

Wikis > Internship

An internship is a temporary professional working position that is typically offered to students or inexperienced workers. It is a project-oriented, supervised, on-the-job learning experience in which the intern has specific learning goals and gives the intern valuable work experience and gains first-hand experience about a particular industry or field of work. It may be paid or unpaid. Internships help inexperienced workers get involved in the workplace, and can sometimes lead to permanent positions.
