Internship Tips & Advice: All You Need To Know

Internships provide valuable experience. Not only do they look impressive on your CV, they help you develop the skills and connections most sought after by employers, and can make securing future employment easier. In addition, they give you the opportunity to find out first-hand what working in a particular sector, industry or company is like and whether it’s a good fit for you.

It’s important to consider the kind of internships on offer and weigh up the various benefits of each. Types of internship include apprenticeships, industrial placements and sandwich courses.
