By Joyce Huber The job market for college grads is changing and becoming more competitive. Now, in addition to GPA and accomplishments, employers want to see more applicants who have completed one or more internships. In fact, according to Monster.com, internship experience is one of the most important factors now for employers when considering new college grads for full-time positions. An internship gives students on-the-job experience while they are still in college. Why is this so important? Internships teach skills that are beyond classroom knowledge. For employers, a college student who has completed one or more internships is often equivalent to full-time employees who have been on the job for many years. For college students, listing one or more internships on their resume shows initiative and real job experience in their field, making them more competitive than other college students who have not completed an internship and more valuable to employers.
