In the 21st. century employers are looking for well rounded individuals to hire. While the traditional requirements are still there, such as GPA, hiring an individual who can bring real-world experience to their organization is of greater importance.
A degree without hands on experience in the professional world is not sufficient. Graduate schools and programs are also putting emphasis on students who have dedicated themselves to an internship while fulfilling their undergraduate requirements.
An internship proves to employers and graduate schools that you are dedicated to your field of interest and have an in-depth understanding of how your specialty/career operates in the real world.
