Can you get internships after college?
Absolutely! I just finished up my college degree and I'm interning this summer. Everyone's path is different, and interning after college is totally great; in some industries, that will be what you're offered since they don't take full time people right off the bat.
What are these internships like?
internships can be very hands on and give you really great insight into what a career is like, or they can be fetching coffee for the bosses. A good way to figure out what they might have you do is to ask what projects they are hoping to accomplish. Even if they have you on coffee runs, don't be afriad to step up and ask to help out on more career-related work.
Are internships after college paid or no?
Some are; some aren't!
What should a student do to secure an internship after college?
Go to a job fair, research, and talk to friends who might know someone in a field. You've already started building your network of connections and you didn't even know it.
What opportunities does an internship after college present?
Sometimes they lead to full-time offers, which is fantastic! If they don't, which may happen if they don't have space to take on new hires, etc, it is still a fantastic learning experience. Add those people to your connections (and Linked In, if you have them). You never know if something will pop up down the road!
