Are internships very important to have during college?
Yes! Internships are THE best way to get hands-on experience in a career which interests you. Aside from giving you good, practical experience and teaching you all kinds of things you'll need in the future, internships can help you figure out for sure what you want to do once you graduate. If you think you want to be a doctor but you end up hating a hospital internship, you can know to change your career plans before it's too late. Additionally, internships look great on your resumé and lots of companies end up hiring interns they like, so they can help you get a job after college.
