With increased competition and the recent economic crisis, finding long-term jobs is becoming harder and harder.
Students are graduating from school and spending countless hours and energy toward applying for their dream jobs. This post-college phase can be
daunting, particularly when job opportunities are scarce, and your insight into career sectors and professions are slim.
Not to mention, most companies and organizations seek real-world experience even for entry-level positions.That is why an internship is the perfect solution! Consider the following:
An internship is the perfect way to achieve professional experience, but in an immediate and personalized way. An internship can be catered to your interests, ranging from career sector to demographic and location. Also, working for a short-term period can be seen as a trial run and will help you decide whether or not you want to take a particular career path.
Gaining career experience abroad is extremely advantageous. It's difficult to pursue work abroad as work permits are complicated and time consuming. An internship abroad gives you the hassle-free opportunity to work for an extended period of time, and learn about a new culture and country. It's one thing experience to travel abroad; but to live and work in a country, like a local, is an entirely different and life-enriching prospect.
One of the most endearing and unique aspects of our internship programme is that all your efforts are geared toward a good cause. We place interns with organizations that do good work and strive to improve unjust conditions in this area.
It’s incredibly rewarding to be an outsider, enter a foreign country, and learn about societal issues by completely immersing yourself in nationwide efforts and initiatives. These organizations desire people that not only work hard, but have a communal sense of altruism. The great thing about altruism and ‘doing good’ is that its all-encompassing - regardless of your skill set, age, or background - you have the ability to help.
