Finding work can be a real challenge, especially if you don't have any
experience. Yet to get experience you must first find a job. Internships provide work experience opportunities to university students,
recent graduates and people considering career changes. Employers are
willing to hire interns with little or no experience, especially if the
intern is willing to accept little or no monetary compensation. However,
the benefits of doing an internship go far beyond your pay cheque.
Learn A Foreign Language
This is an opportunity to learn a foreign language and greatly improve your fluency in it by working in the native country.
Improve your chances of getting that International job by learning languages like French, Spanish and German.
Gain International Work Experience
An internship provides the opportunity to gain hands on work experience. First time job seekers and
career changers aren’t usually desirable candidates, but companies are
willing to train them as interns and give them the experience they would
need to get a job. Employers see interns as prospective employees and many finish their
internships and continue working with the company full time. Internships
are the number one way for employers to find new staff in the US. Think of
it as a really long interview, after which you’ve proved that you are a
capable and hardworking employee.
Add Value to your CV
Many employers prefer or require applicants who have done an
internship or relevant work experience and in many of the more competitive
job markets it is essential to set you apart from the others. What's more,
if you have an impressive resume, you will be more confident in your
chances of securing a job. After you’ve done an internship, if an
interviewer asks if you know how to do something, you can say “absolutely and
supplement your assertion with examples.
Internships are a great way to meet people in your field. An internship allows you to meet
people who might help you land a job later on and give you the contacts in
the industry you’re trying to break into. Plus, references from people
in the industry will really add weight to your application.
