Every young person embarking on their first experience of working life, whether direct from school or via university, should be aware of the opportunities available to them. Some students know exactly what they want to do and have already chosen a future career path. For others, they will still be thinking through a number of alternatives and options.

During your time at university, choices and decisions need to be made which will impact the direction of your career. At this time you should also try to gain experience in your chosen career paths. Or you should try alternatives. The best opportunity for this is to apply for Internship programs.

Internship Programs: What are they and why are they useful?

Each student is given real-life projects and assigned a mentor throughout their program. The students can also experience the social aspects of working life and attend staff social functions.
