Working at a grocery store is a classic way to gain experience, but there are a variety of internships in Denver that can help get your foot in the door -- be it for a career in government or broadcasting. And none of them involve groceries (unless you pack your lunch).
A survey of local employers reveals that aerospace technology company Lockheed Martin offers real-world experiences in engineering (aerospace, computer, electrical, industrial, and mechanical), mathematics, physics, accounting, business, finance -- even human resources.
