accumulate/gather practical experience

Hi everybody!:)

I made the below sentence myself.

I accumulated practical experience in my field of study there.

Context: I did my internship at a company, and it was a great opportunity to accumulate practical experience in my field of study.

Does it make sense to you? My most concern is about the usage of 'accumulate'. I don't know whether, in this context, it is natural or not. How about other alternative: 'gather'? Any other possible suggestions are welcome.

Thank you in advance.
