Internships

Note that many companies state that they prefer students attending 4 year colleges or ask for bachelor’s degree candidates as one of their preferred qualifications for internships. However this should not stop you from applying as this does not mean that other candidates are not considered. Your academic record, experience, quality of your resume and other documentation, as well as the strength of your references are all important.
