"We have been regularly using engineering interns and co-ops from various different universities since at least 1996. I believe internships and co-ops can be a rare win-win in the business world. The employer gets help from students who are eager to show what they’ve been learning. Students get practical opportunities to “test drive” their future career while gaining valuable experience and income. Internships are also an opportunity for both employers and students to see if there could be a long-term fit between them for employment after the student’s graduation. In fact, we have hired multiple engineers who had been either interns or co-ops with us while they were working on their degrees."
