Chapter 5, Section 4:
Environmental internships are jobs that are meant to teach. Interns work on projects related to their specific interest in order to determine if the activity would be a good career choice. Most internships are for a limited time and usually do not pay a great deal of money. Housing and meals are often provided, and participants live and work with environmental professionals in the field. Internships provide an excellent opportunity to establish long-lasting networks with other students and with career environmental professionals.
