​An internship is the best way to sample your chosen career field while you're still in school. Companies have identified the IT classes and skills needed for interns, so you can often obtain an internship after just one year of study.

The internship allows you to explore various types of companies to determine the best fit for you. You also build your resume and expand your professional network. Most companies even pay interns!
