How Becoming an Intern or Volunteer Can Help Your Career Grow

List: Posted: 09/19/11

Making the most of your chosen career is certainly an important thing.  This is the entire reason that most people go to college or to a university – to boost their career potential and their success.  If you are looking for a way to do this for your own career, becoming an intern or a volunteer can certainly help you achieve this goal.


There are many benefits to becoming an intern.  First, you will be able to learn firsthand how things operate in your business of choice.  You will be given a glimpse of the inner workings of your field as an intern that is not available to even university students.  This real world information can translate directly to greater success for you.


Another significant benefit to being an intern is the number of contacts that you will make in the industry.  While much of your career will rest on your skill and knowledge, quite a bit is about having the right contacts.  As an intern, you will be able to develop your "who you know" list much better than if you simply went through school and never volunteered or worked as an intern.


These are only a few of the benefits if you choose to intern with a company or organization.  Another significant advantage here is that if you intern with an organization, you will be considered a better hire when your education is complete, which opens up numerous doors for your career and boosts your earning potential considerably.
