Get job experience solving real world problems
Many majors at OSU require internships or a mentorship component. Internships not only help build your critical thinking and problem-solving skills, they also make you attractive to employers and help you stand out from other job applicants.
Internships are any temporary, paid or unpaid, student training experiences at a company or organization in the your field that help you gain skills and qualifications for your career.
These experiences can help you figure out what jobs interest you and also give you real-life, hands-on experiences. In a recent survey, more than half of all college graduates said that an internship got them a job after graduation.
