- You can establish relationships with mentors in your area of interest
- You gain college credit, pay or certification
- You are introduced to the field's culture, norms and etiquette
- You accumulate new skills
- You acquire a "real world" perspective on an occupation
- Local Internship Opportunities

Local internships provide an opportunity to gain valuable experience while continuing education, to train with people who manage the day-to-day business of the company or organization, and to combine individual academic study with on-the-job experience. East Texas Baptist University partners with a variety of employers, including the City of Marshall.
