Internships are rapidly transforming from a recommendation to a requirement for students seeking entry-level jobs. Practically every industry now operates internships to train those interested in obtaining full-time work. Yet, internships are by no means standardized from industry to industry; their duties and requirements vary as much as the nature of their work. Moreover, many internship programs are specially designed for undergraduate students, while others are tailored to graduate students and even postgraduates.

For instance, internships in Healthcare Jobs are often apprenticeship-like programs in which students at nursing schools work under the supervision of registered nurses (RNs). In these programs, the RNs are called preceptors, and the interns are called receptors. Nursing internships often entail the intern a full-time nurse and assisting the nurse's duties. These internships' exact settings vary, with some nursing internships taking place at clinics and others taking place at various departments in hospitals, such as emergency rooms and intensive care units. There are a number of internship positions, which demand more time and comprehensive training. For example, internships in Critical Care instruct interns in intensive care, hem dialysis, cardiac care, and emergency procedures. Likewise, a Pediatric Nurse Internship trains interns in pediatric cancer, pediatric rehabilitation, bone-marrow transplants, pediatric intensive care, and hematological care. Whatever the concentration, nursing interns also learn data-entry computer programs and note-taking procedures. These internships are always paid and come with a benefits package, since they essentially function as entry-level nursing jobs.

Naturally, medical internships are equally hands-on and time-intensive. As with nursing internships, they are not so much internships as entry-level jobs for doctors who have recently graduated from medical school. They typically last about one year and transit interns to their respective residency programs. Teaching hospitals are the most frequent employer of these interns, since they place interns alongside resident doctors in emergency rooms, trauma units, intensive care units, and operating rooms. They are holistic, designed to grind students in a full clinical foundation. Their comprehensive nature helps interns pinpoint their specialty as they move on to their residency programs. Similar to nursing programs, these internships are paid and have benefits packages, with the exception of numerous overseas and nonprofit programs.

Though medicine embraces many internship programs, internships in business branches are less standardized, since there are multiple lines and institutions of business. For instance, Internship Finance Jobs may take place in brokerages, accounting firms, insurance companies, banks, and non-profit organizations. Nonetheless, they often demand the same range of skills from their interns, as the average financial intern performing accounting tasks, budget analysis, and financial planning. On the other hand, banks and other credit houses may demand, specialized skills within a banking department, such as investment banking, human resources, global finances, and equities. Moreover, interns in accounting firms learn auditing, tax accounting, budget analysis, and generalized accounting procedures.

Many financial internship programs are Summer Internship Jobs, as they demand interns' full attention. Some prestigious financial internships offer payment and benefits, while others experiencing a hiring freeze may not. Financial interns often select the program that provides training for their specialty, such as investing or credit loaning, take into account the program's location and reputability. Most financial internship jobs are for juniors or seniors in college, and are summer programs.

Internships in arts are equally advantageous for liberal-arts students. For example, a student majoring in English who wants to become a teacher can take an internship as a teacher's aide. If an English Major wants to become an editor, he or she can intern at a publishing house. There are also countless magazines and newspapers that need interns to help them process their heavy workloads. Again, internships at more prestigious companies, such as ''Time Magazine'' or ''USA Today,'' will be many times more competitive than an internship at a local publication.

Besides English, another common art major is art history. Many art-history majors decide to pursue museum-studies work. Therefore, their best bet is to find an internship at an art museum or cultural institution that allows them to observe and participate in curatorial work or museum administration. If they are high achievers, they can apply to nationally renowned museums such as the Smithsonian Institution or the Metropolitan Museum. However, even local internships can equip them with valuable experience that they may otherwise lack.

To make the most out of their internships, students should perform their tasks as competently as possible in order to stand out in their workplace. The point of internships, besides providing practical experience, is to help students obtain recommendations from their supervisors as they apply for postgraduate jobs. Students are also urged to complete several internships throughout their college careers, each building on the next level of training. Gaining in-depth experience from multiple internships will help a student make a seamless transition into full-time work at a top-ranking job.
