From the time we are born, up until now, all we’ve known is school. It’s been a part of our lives for as long as we can remember. The purpose is to prepare us for the real world that we inevitably hit, once we decide to put an end to our attendance in an educational institution. The way we attack the real world is crucial and the steps we take now can have an extremely huge impact on our success. That is why the more that we brand ourselves at a younger age, we plan our steps so that we can get the most experience possible and give ourselves the best chance to get ahead.

Pace contributes to our efforts to better ourselves with their requirement of an internship. If not by junior year, then definitely senior year. Pace University requires that all of its students have an internship by time they graduate. This gives Pace graduates a step ahead of their competition because while others may be at home deciding on what their next move in life is Pace students are already stacking up their resume in every way possible. Those same internships that count as credits can turn into either full-time or part-time jobs by the time graduation comes.

To some individuals, an opportunity like this can be taken for granted, but when it is fully understood, it becomes clear that this is a great way to have doors open up for you in the future. There is nothing better than that. At this point in life, students are worried about being established in their own place, driving decent cars, and having careers of their interest. It all starts with the decisions made in college and the internships that students apply for can help make that fantasy become a reality.

Think about it this way. What if Pace didn’t require its students to have an internship prior to graduation? If that was the case, then I’m quite sure that there are many students that would probably not have ended up where they are now because of the foundations they built upon with the internships they had.

Internships are a great deal and without them, competition in the work force would be that much fiercer. By having an internship while in school, it helps students with time management skills, responsibilities, compartmentalizing, and work ethic. All of these qualities help a college student stand out to an employer. That is just another favor Pace is doing for us.
