Students do summer internships to polish their skills and gain some hands-on experience in their area of interest. Summer internships can also count towards college credits which is why some colleges insist that students do internships at a company that best suits their academic background.

Summer internships are usually a couple of months long and do not always pay. Interns usually perform menial tasks such as photocopying and small time research. They usually work in different departments of the company to see how it works real time.

In order to acquire a summer internship, you need to build a good resume that depicts both your interest and your skills to be able to do the job. Have a look at this example!
