Internships can help you refine what you would like to do after college, while also giving you hands-on experience and sometimes you even, get paid. Summer is the perfect time to try an internship, particularly if you find yourself overwhelmingly busy during the semester. Plus, it will keep your mom from yelling at you to get off the couch or your dad forcing you to do yard work. Check out these summer internships that will help you develop your resume no matter your major.
