Benefits of Pre-Professional Experience in Psychology: Learn Psychology: “We find that internships and research experiences are actually very, very beneficial for undergraduates, especially those looking to go onto graduate school, but even for anyone looking to move directly into the working world. The reason being is that internships give students a lot more real-world experience either in conducting research or working with people directly. It helps them in filling in the experience part of their resume, which is as important as with their classroom productivity, or if we’re talking about graduate school, their GRE scores and personal essays. So they are absolutely recommended for all of our undergraduate students, though an internship or research with a faculty member is not currently required.”
