5 Benefits Of Completing An Internship


What is an internship?
Hobsons define an internship as the time and place where higher education meets employment. It's the time of transition between student life and adulthood, the first entrance into the working world. It depends on where you do your internship, as this could be a place where you can both gain work experience while continuing your studies. This could be paid or unpaid where you have a number of set weeks to work in a particular organisation.

It is likely that your lecturers and tutors have already mentioned the importance of internships and industry experience. It is also likely that the thought of careers and taking on work experience might leave you feeling apprehensive, especially if you are still trying to get your head around university life and study. When you think of all the benefits that go with completing an internship, however, it really is worth it. Muovo has found the following tips as highlighting the main benefits you can gain from embarking upon an internship.

1) You can make industry contacts.
It has been said many times: ‘it’s not about what you know; it’s about who you know’. Of course, it is necessary that you know how to perform the tasks at hand, but having a good range of contacts who can help you find (and possibly secure) a job after you finish your studies would surely be a godsend.

When you finish your internship, you are likely to gain a number of references and referees. These will be fundamental to your hiring process so you should try to remain on good terms with your internship contacts and touch base with them from time-to-time; they will be more likely to keep you in mind for other positions that crop up in the industry and hook you up with those hard-to-come-by opportunities.

2) It looks good on your résumé.
The graduate job market is incredibly competitive, so having a full résumé that includes actual industry experience is sure to be a valuable asset. It has the potential to make you stand out from the competition.

3) You can convert your academic knowledge into industry skills.
For many students university can be quite theoretical and an internship is their first opportunity to apply their knowledge to the real world. The experience will not only help you to develop the skills needed to work in your industry; working on real projects for a real organisation will also give you the interpersonal skills that you need to work effectively with others — and confidence in your own abilities. You may find that longer internships allow you to work on projects from start to finish and give you a more in-depth experience of an organisation. If you have the spare time then a month-long intensive internship or a part-time internship over six months or a year may be a better option.

4) The experience will narrow down your list of potential careers.
Internships really are a win-win situation. They can help you decide if a particular career or area is or isn’t for you, and narrow down the (often long) list of careers that you are interested in to find one that you will be happy in. If you don’t enjoy your internship experience then, at the very least, it will have helped you to determine that a particular area isn’t for you. Don’t give up, you can always try another internship in a different organisation, role or a completely different field and see if you like it any better. Every experience helps you to define and redirect your career path.

5) You can gain an unforgettable life experience.
While the career you end up working in may be a bit more down-to-earth, internships allow you to explore all the possibilities and come away with an experience that you will never forget. While a full-time job may be hard to come across in certain areas and organisations, many companies are willing to take on an intern. An internship could allow you to take a look into professions and organisations that you’ve only ever dreamed of.
