                    Nine Reasons to Apply for an Internship or Co-op

                    • Professional Experience: Employers expect to see internship or work experience on your resume before you graduate. Serious engineering experience will ensure that you and your resume always get noticed first.
                    • Money: Save for school, for a car, or for fun. Check out our latest Salary Survey by major.
                    • Confidence: Experience allows you to speak to other engineers as colleagues.
                    • Contacts: Meet the people who are doing what you want to do. It's who you know AND what you know - an unbeatable combination.
                    • Skills: Learn new technical skills as well as essential life skills: organization, teamwork, meeting deadlines, and taking initiative. You may be surprised that even school seems easier.
                    • Practice: You learned it in school, now put it to use. The big picture comes into focus.
                    • Knowledge: Did you choose the right major? Do you like the work environment? Would you do anything differently next time? It's better to learn these answers sooner rather than later.
                    • Travel: Sure, most of our jobs are in the Washington Metro area; however, there are a lot of opportunities if you want to try out a different environment. How about California, Florida, New York, Arizona or even international locations!
                    • A Job Offer: Just think, maybe you won't have to look for a job after graduation because you'll already have a great offer from your current employer!
