    Each semester many col-lege students completeinternships as a way toapply their academic

    learning to the real world. Theseinternship experiences complimentand add to what students learn inthe classroom and are often arequirement for their college major.Colleges and faculty recognize theimportance of these experientialactivities and understand theirvalue as they watch students workto gain the necessary knowledgeand skills required for success in

    todays work force. A tough econo-my like the one we are currentlyexperiencing forces employers tobe even more selective in the hiringprocess and this makes many jobsin a wide range of industries evenmore competitive. Employerslooking to hire for entry-level posi-tions seek applicants who have rel-evant work experience included on

    their resumes, and they highlyvalue applicants who have alreadycompleted one or more internships.

    Since Skidmore is a liberal artscollege, there are students seekinginternships that are related to awide range of interests. Althoughmany students are focused, have setdefinite career goals, and alreadyknow that they want to gain experi-ence in careers such as advertising,finance, marketing, publishing,government, education, art, socialwork, computer technology, for-eign languages, etc., there are alsoa considerable number of studentswho are still unsure of their careeraspirations and hope that an intern-ship will help provide them withsome direction. Working alongsideprofessionals in the field is anopportunity for students to see

    what actually occurs on a day-to-day basis as well as a chance to askquestions of professionals that willhopefully assist them in their deci-sion-making and career develop-ment.

    Students doing internships forcredit must complete 130 hours persemester to receive 3 credit hourswhich is included on their college

    transcript. Students work directlywith an onsite supervisor at theinternship site as well as a facultymember who sponsors them, setsthe criteria and evaluates the over-all internship experience. In addi-tion to the hours students work attheir internship, they may berequired to keep a journal, write apaper or do a reading or presenta-tion that offers them an opportunityto reflect on the experience.Internships are an excellent way forstudents to test the waters and getexposure to careers that they decidemay or may not be of genuine inter-est to them. Since internships areone of the best ways for students togain the knowledge and skillsrequired by many employers seek-ing entry-level candidates, doingseveral internships prior to gradua-tion will definitely make themmore competitive candidates intodays job market.

    Skidmore Colleges CareerServices Office houses an onlinedatabase for local, national andinternational internships. Careercounselors work with studentsdirectly on helping them to uncov-er some of the many opportunitiesthat are available. During fall andspring semesters, many students dointernships in addition to their reg-ular college course work. Duringthe summer there are a number ofstudents who want to stay in theSaratoga area and who usually seeklocal internships and/or summerjobs. There are also a large numberof students who look for internshipopportunities in their home townand some who even hope to find aninternship abroad. Although intern-ships with nonprofit agencies or

    volunteer organizations are gener-ally unpaid, there are many intern-ships that offer students a modestsalary, stipend, or unique benefitthat help to defray some of theirpersonal and/or college expenses.

    Like many college communities,the Saratoga Springs area offers alarge variety of internship opportu-nities for college students. Studentsare often assigned to assist with anorganization or agencys day-to-day workload or they may be askedto come in to complete a specialproject or assignment. Dependingon their knowledge and experience,employers often assign interns sim-ilar tasks that they offer their full-

    time employees. Internships are awin-win situation for both employ-ers and students. Students partici-pating in internships gain valuableknowledge and experience whileemployers often get a new andfresh perspective and may even beintroduced to new strategies andtechniques that are current and newto the field.
