You know the old adage about book knowledge versus real-world experience, right? You can study how to do something, but actually doing it is an entirely different matter. Working a job is a perfect example.
That’s why Internships and Part-Time jobs are invaluable to fresh college graduates:
They provide hands-on experience, so your knowledge can quickly and confidently be applied and developed. So, a prospective employer knows that your learned abilities are real.
Research shows that Internships and Part-Time work are often the most important aspect of being hired into a good career. For example:
“Employers place more weight on experience, particularly internships and employment during school vs. academic credentials including GPA and college major when evaluating a recent graduate for employment.” – Chronicle of Higher Education and American Public Media’s Marketplace.
PATH2HappiSuccess has developed an affordable and straight-forward program specifically designed to give students the best opportunity to start college in a major they are confident about, good at and passionate about. This combination will make them attractive for good Internships and/or Part-Time work almost immediately.
