Why Pursue an Internship?

Project Onramp was founded on the principle that there is no better way to get started on a career in life sciences – to get your foot in the door – than an internship at one of the state’s leading life sciences companies. Why is that?

Internships provide real-world experience to those looking to gain the relevant knowledge and skills required to enter a particular career field. Internships are relatively short-term, with the primary focus of getting some on-the-job training and taking what’s learned in the classroom and applying it to the real world. Interns generally have a supervisor who assigns specific tasks and evaluates the intern’s overall work. Internships are an excellent way to begin building important connections that are invaluable in developing and maintaining a strong professional network in the future.
