Like most international students, I am assuming you are also interested in getting internships while studying for your degree programs in the US and other countries.
While internships can be a good way to earn some money to fund your tuition and living expenses, there are some more reasons to pursue internships:
- Internships give you an opportunity to determine your interest in a particular career
- You gain experience in the field you are interested in
- You can connect with other people and build your professional network
- Internships often lead to a full-time job
- Your internship experience will be very useful in terms of your subsequent job search
- In some cases, you may also get some school credits for your internships
