How does one go about averting the dire graduate employment conditions that we are currently experiencing? You could study further, or try and start your own business. Both of these require capital. What happens if you don’t have the money to invest in such ventures? Meet Inspiring Interns.
One way is to look at doing an internship. An internship is a great precursor to a job, and gives graduates the skills and experience to then go on and get a full time job. Yes, I know, what a generic statement!
In actual in fact, two of the best benefits of doing an internship are networking opportunities and actually being able to test out the job sector/function before making a commitment.
If you want to find other interesting benefits of doing an internship, then watch the video interview below. I get to chat with Andrew Scherer, author of the book ‘Brilliant Intern’ and Communications Director at Inspiring Interns.
He will tell us about:
- What Inspiring Interns do
- How they can help you land an internship
- Why a video CV adds another dimension to a candidates profile
- What the conversion rate is from internship to job
