The importance of experiential learning

To many students an internship is a way to make some extra cash and possibly credit for a course. But what they get is so much more. Thinking back the 100 years ago that i was an intern, i found that I learned things that I could never learn in the classroom: Office protocal, office politics, lingo, attire. I learned their place, their importance and how to maneuver through without, well, looking like an intern. Your internship is the place where you can make those mistakes and be forgiven. Those mistakes during your "career" can label you for years to come. Take advantage of the opportunity and the experience and most importantly enjoy the opportunity, treat it serious and professionally and they will treat you the same.
