In the words of Mike Kurmlavage: The IWP Internship Experience, Summer 2012
With the ever-growing number of job candidates, and the decline in the value of a bachelor's degree, internships have secured their place among today's "to do list" of many college undergraduates. While many of them hope to gain invaluable experience working in an office, as well as attempt to augment their resumes, today's young Americans are drawn to the internship like never before. The socio-political field is amidst the most competitive of internships because of the 21st century's lust for individual networking. Seeking to harness a portion of this youthful energy, The Institute of World Politics invites a number of college-aged people to help them follow their dreams.
