What are Internships?
An internship is a fantastic opportunity for you to gain some work experience in a field of interest that is offered by a company for a limited period of time.
What are the benefits?
Firstly, it looks great on your CV if you've obtained some experience in the field you're interested in; this will help you stand out from the crowd amongst other candidates in future roles.
The bonus of an internship only being for a limited period of time means that you can get a taster of your desired industry and see if it’s right for you through gaining a personal insight.
The invaluable experience that an internship brings also allows you to develop and build your skills, gain feedback which can help further develop and improve your capabilities, maybe even turning some of your weaknesses into strengths.
Finally, an internship gives you the chance to network with people in the industry and create connections with employers and peers that can potentially help and guide your future careers.
