The Professional Writing & Rhetoric internship section of the website can be a useful tool for current majors as well as prospective students. Throughout this site you will be able to get a better understanding of the internship process, particularly for PWR majors/minors, common internships for PWR majors and resources available to you.
Internships are crucial because future employers need to see past working experience and that you are familiar with a work setting. Moreover, they allow you to gain a better understanding of your potential future career path or eliminate a career that you thought you would love but determine after interning in the industry it is not for you. Finally, having internships makes the transition from college to a post-graduate job easier because you have an idea of what to expect in certain situations.
