Happy New Year from all of us here at Tasty Careers! The beginning of the year is a great time to set some goals to help you succeed in 2018. On that note, the start of the year is also the perfect time to be applying for those internships that may have caught your eye. But first things first, it’s time to get equipped with some information about internships and how and why they can benefit you!

An internship is a fantastic opportunity to gain some work experience in a field you’re interested in that is offered by a company for a limited period of time.

Not only are you helping the company but the benefits you gain are HUGE too!

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 from the on the job experience.

The invaluable experience that an internship brings also allows you to develop and build your skills, gain feedback which can help your further develop and improve your capabilities, maybe even turning some of your weaknesses into strengths, what a great confidence booster (and that’s another benefit)!

Finally, an internship allows you to network with people in your industry and create connections with employers and peers that can potentially help and guide you in your future careers. How can you turn that down?!
