Before we begin…Are you looking for an Internship or Mentoring opportunities? Let’s first understand the difference:
Mentoring is a process for the informal transmission of knowledge, social capital, and the psycho-social support perceived by the recipient as relevant to work, career, or professional development. The mentoring process entails informal communication, usually face-to-face and during a sustained period of time, between a person who is perceived to have greater relevant knowledge, wisdom, or experience (the mentor) and a person who is perceived to have less (the protégé).

An internship, on the other hand, is a job training whereby there an exchange of services for experience between the student and an organization. Interns may be a high school, college or university students, or post-graduate adults. These positions may be paid or unpaid and are usually temporary. Students can also use an internship to determine if they have an interest in a particular career, to create a network of contacts, to acquire a recommendation letter to add to their curriculum vitae, or to gain school credit.
