Gaining Professional Experience

Hands-on learning is a major component of the traditional liberal arts experience at Drew. We call it experiential learning. Our office ensures that students have access to hundreds of opportunities close to campus and across the country. An internship is especially valuable to liberal arts students who can see how skills learned in the classroom translate into job related skills. You test your understanding of a particular career field without a long term commitment and possibly pique your interest in career areas that may not correspond to your area of study. You learn first hand about the “world of work” and develop maturity, professionalism, and self-confidence. From a practical point of view, internships establish a record of work-related experience essential for graduate school as well as references for your job search. Importantly, internships frequently lead to full time jobs for Drew students, either at the location of the internship or with another company in a related field.
