Yes, it’s only November, you’ve only just finished researching your Halloween costume and Guy Fawkes outfit, and now I’m asking you to research internships for next summer! Well yes – closing dates are fast approaching for some summer opportunities – and work experience is important – and you’ll find out just how important, when it comes to moving on from your course…..!
On a quick flick through internships opportunities advertised via MCH, the following caught my eye (there are soooo many more….)
- Saltire Scholar scheme, (check the profiles of the 2014 Scholars including UofE students – find out more via The Saltire Information session – Tues 11 Nov, 5:30 – 6:30 PM DHT, Faculty Room South, check MyCareerHub under ‘Events’.)
- Institute of arts and ideas, for PR, arts and events internships
- AXA, P&G, Standard Life – and more for – HR internships
- Google for HR, Marketing, sales – and more
- Corporate Social Responsibility projects with AON
- Charity fundraising with Champion Life Academy
- English language assistant in Spain
- Technical author internship with Redgate Software – for those with a meticulous eye for detail
- Community engagement Ninja – for foodies/craft beer/social media enthusiasts with Flavourly Ltd
….and sooooo many more – check out the above, and all the opportunities via MCH and the Internship section of our website. And keep checking back – some closing dates, particularly with larger organisations, are nearly with us – or passed – but more opportunities are posted every day, and some employers will recruit nearer the summer – so keep up to date via MCH and other internship sites.
Important point – not all opportunities are advertised – particularly in media/arts -related areas, so you may need to put your research skills to good use in tracking down internships in areas of work you’re interested in – use our advice on finding unadvertised opportunities from our website.
And it you’re still stumped for ideas for making good use of your next long vacation – discuss your plans – or lack of them – with a Careers Consultant, or call into the Careers Service and ask our well-informed Information Advisers for help with your research.
