Doing a general internship with the Waukesha Field Station allowed me to do things that I don’t normally get a chance to do. I learned a lot about wildlife and plants and encourage students to do internships even if it’s not within their studies.

I interned for the Milwaukee Milkmen and I loved every second of it. Working with the Milkmen gave me opportunities and experiences that will help me throughout my career. If you’re hesitant about doing an internship, don’t be. Just do it and you’ll be happy you did.

I interned for the Urban Ecology Center and even with a pandemic going on, the benefits were amazing. Not only was it paid, but I got to make so many connections with nonprofits in Milwaukee, countless friends, and even a dream job at the end of it. It gave me experience in a field I’d never worked in and confidence in the major I chose, I’d recommend it for every college student.

Pursuing an internship is so advantageous to develop professional work experience and transferable skills, build your portfolio, network, and build meaningful relationships. Any student that has an internship will set themselves apart and have a competitive advantage in the job market when looking at a full-time position.
