The Importance of Internships

Career Services

We believe that internships are a critical component of your academic and professional development. Our students have interned at some of the most prestigious companies and organizations in Greater Boston. Whether it's a tech giant, a non-profit, a government agency, or a start-up, our internship program has helped students like you gain invaluable experience and make meaningful contributions. 

Here's why our goal is for every FSU student to complete an internship:

  • Bridging the Gap Between Classroom and Career: Internships provide a unique opportunity to apply what you've learned in the classroom to real-world situations. They help you:
  • Gain Practical Experience: Internships allow you to work in your field of interest, giving you hands-on experience that enhances your resume and sets you apart from other graduates.
  • Build Professional Networks: Through internships, you can connect with industry professionals, mentors, and peers who can offer guidance, support, and future job opportunities.
  • Develop Essential Skills: You'll develop key skills such as communication, problem-solving, teamwork, and time management, which are highly valued by employers.
