Why get an internship? 

Internships help you determine if your intended career path is the right fit for you. This is why it is important to try to secure an internship early in your Monmouth career. 

Internships also help develop your technical skills, allow you to expand your professional network, and give you a true professional work experience to prepare you for your first post-Monmouth job.
