GROWTH@IRENA: Undergraduates, kick-start your career with a summer internship at IRENA


Everyone starts somewhere. Before he built his businesses, Elon Musk interned at Microsoft and the Bank of Nova Scotia. He knew, like many others, that a summer internship is a great way to learn on-the-job skills, grow a professional network, and learn more about what kind of career you want. Students who undertake work experience make better-informed career choices and have a chance to refine their interpersonal and professional skills.
