What is an Internship? 
An internship is a training opportunity provided by firms, businesses, and organizations for high school and college students to strengthen their chances of employment and their understanding of potential career prospects.
Do Internships Pay?
Yes, many internships pay a stipend as well as lodging/transportation allowances. But some are unpaid too.
Types of Internships 
There are two rudimentary types of internships: research internships and work experience internships. Work experience internships are of interest for students vying to solidify their resumes. The experience acquired over the course of the internship then helps them as they graduate from college and begin to apply for jobs. Research internships involve working in labs, hospitals or private companies. They also offer benefit for students looking to improve their resume. 
Why are they important? 
The beauty of the internship process is that interns usually find long term employment with the company they are interning for. Additionally, many universities offer upper level academic credit for completing an internship. For students who haven’t decided on a future career path, internships provide an opportunity to discover and explore potential opportunities in the real world. Internships can be paid, unpaid, or partially paid; however, the money involved is not a priority. What matters is the valuable experience and exposure garnered for the start of a successful career.
