Technology internships can encompass many different industries, including information technology (IT), computer science, social media, electronics, software, and so on. As you probably already know, technology has been booming over the last few decades. The US had the dot com boom in the late 1990s, and more recently, the whole world has joined in the technology race such as Japan and South Korea.

For the student, it is a great way to get your foot in the door of a fast moving industry. For the company, it is an inexpensive way of training students who may become future full-time employees. Indeed, it is a win-win situation that benefits both parties.
