Employers get highly motivated interns with current skills. Students gain work experience in a field they may choose for a future career. Students will meet and work with people who can suggest future directions and make referrals.

Look for an internship that's a good fit for you and your career path. An internship is more than a summer job — it provides training and experience related to a career.

At Cascadia, some programs require internships for academic credit. Other programs offer elective credit for internships. For details, see Internship Programs and Requirements.
