Internships have historically been used to teach students the necessary skills and competencies for many trades and professions. This was accomplished by having a student serve an apprenticeship with a skilled mentor or teacher. This concept continues today in academic areas such as criminal justice, social sciences, and education. If you decide on a corrections career, the internship experience will prove invaluable. You will gain experience in a corrections agency and develop relationships with practitioners who can help you in procuring future employment.
