Apprenticeship combines on-the-job training and related classroom instruction. Hands-on and theoretical training prepares workers for highly skilled and specialized occupations. Apprenticeship programs are sponsored by individual employer and/or employer associations, or by joint employer and labor groups.
What is an Internship? An internship is a career preparation activity in which students are placed at a worksite for a defined period to participate in and observe work firsthand within a given industry. Unlike work experience, internships often allow students to rotate through several departments and job functions. An internship is an excellent way to determine if the industry and the profession is the best career option to follow before investing a lot of time and money in training and education.

Your family's contacts and family friend's contacts are usually the best sources for providing information on potential internship sites. Having family members reach out to their contacts is a great way to use networking to find an internship site. This source is often the easiest way to secure an internship because in most cases, family friends already know you and what kind of student you are.
Another way to find internship site is to complete an Internet search using Google to find local companies of the type you would like to intern with. Once you find companies or organizations that you are interested in, you will need to contact a decision maker at that company/organization to see if they will host you as an intern.
