Have you ever come out of an interview knowing that if you had the right experience you would have got the job? You got on well with the interviewer, you answered all the questions they had, but you couldn’t quite stretch your work history to meet the job criteria. Maybe 3 or 4 years ago you would have got the job. These days competition for roles is fierce. To get ahead you need to have done something different. Maybe it’s time to consider an internship.
Internships are a great way to get experience in your chosen field. You can try different areas out without having to commit to a career. On top of this 65% of Inspiring Interns internship positions lead to full time jobs. They are often voluntary positions with the employer covering your lunch and travel expenses. If you are looking for experience they can’t be beaten. If you haven’t considered an internship up to now it might be the time to think again. It would be a shame to dismiss an opportunity in the industry you want to get because it has come under the guise of an internship.
