An internship is basically a period of work experience offered by an organisation, lasting for a fixed period of time, whether that be a week or a year! They are great for students and graduates who want to gain experience before or after attending university. Employers often use these work placements as an opportunity to assess the capability of an individual and can often lead to recruitment if you really make an impression!
HOW TO FIND INTERNSHIPS IN THE UK
Social media is a great tool too, and not just for selfies! Connect with companies on LinkedIn and keep an eye out to see if they have anything on offer, remember, you want to look as professional as possible. Speak to people, it’s all about contacts when it comes to careers and internships, it’s not always just what you know, it’s who you know too.
It’s important to note that internships aren’t always paid, some may cover for travel and accommodation costs, but some might not! You need to ensure you have enough money to help you along the way, with a nice comfortable base to live in whilst you’re working.
