The organization

Your internship will be regarded by future employers as a very valuable part of your resume. It will say something about you and what your ambitions are. Employers will see this as your first work experience and look carefully at what you did and with which organizations. In an interview, they will want to know why you have chosen an internship precisely with that organization and the activities you performed. The connection of your personal profile to the profile of the work placement organization will let you feel more comfortable during your internship and show your prospective employer who you are and what you can do.
