Chapter 9: Experience and Internships
Finding internships in specific sectors
Internships in each job area are advertised on a wide range of websites. Firms in some sectors such as accountancy advertise numerous organised placements whilst many in other industries such as publishing expect you to apply on spec.
You can start looking for opportunities via the links displayed on the resource page for Chapter 5.
There are lots of ways to gain experience. You could volunteer, join a student society or help at a summer camp, to name just a few. Use this activity to identify opportunities which you could undertake.
