Why are internships beneficial to HR undergraduate and graduate students?

Internships are full or part time opportunities to gain career related experience and exposure to working in an office environment. You enhance your knowledge from the classroom with real world experience. Meeting new co-workers will help build your list of professional contacts and possibly assist you to attain a full-time position after graduation.
