As part of the program, there was a short lecture on the importance of Internships and how a internship can a option for employment after university. The 30 minute lecture discussing the possibilities students have after university and how companies will offer internships to start off a graduate student into the industry before moving up to a more permanent job. The option to gain a internship was very interesting for myself as I had not thought about this being a opportunity for myself. Another reason this would work is the concept of being able to find somewhere back in Yorkshire. Being close to home would make life easier but also the area is somewhere I know incredibly well and can find easy access to travelling and the businesses. This would give me a second option in the future after university and gave me insight to the way internships function.
Overall, the lecture gave me insight to the functions of internships. for example, understanding that all internship come with the minimum wage. No employer should say that internships do not pay, as part of the UK regulations, all internships should be paid. Another insight is how easy it is to find a internship available for you. Simply looking online but also the careers advice can set you up a account to start your search.
