Internships are a great way to put academic knowledge into practice while exploring career possibilities. An intern expects to acquire practical skills in the day-to-day operation of an environmental organization. Often an intern will develop a relationship with a mentor within the organization, establishing valuable contacts in his or her field of interest.
