The job market is a competitive one, especially these days. We live in a time where almost everyone has papers. Employers will even make it harder by requiring you to have years of experience and graduates are always left wondering how good their chances are.

Not everyone is lucky to get an entry level job immediately after graduation. Taking part in an internship, attachment or volunteer work may not be at the top of ones priority list post-graduation.

At this level, who does not want to start earning some money? In some learning institutions internships are not a must but in others, it is needed to graduate. Whether the school prioritizes on it or not, here are the reasons you should intern.

Gaining Experience

When employers ask for experience, they probably don’t care whether you got paid or not. Internships will offer you the skills and professionalism that you need to have for the job market. With an internship experience, you have higher chances of getting employment over someone with only papers to show.

Develop your Resume

Developing a curriculum vitae with no work experience is not easy. You are always wondering on other ways to please your to-be employer with an empty work experience section. With an internship experience, you are able to develop a more convincing resume.

Entry to a Permanent Position

Internships and attachments help you showcase and proof yourself to the employer. This is a way to get an employer to notice that you are an important resource to keep thus landing yourself a permanent full-time paying job.

Know What You Like and Don’t Like

You may never know whether you really like something until you try it. When you are undertaking an internship, you get to know which department you properly fit in and prioritize on that. This will also help you not to take up a job that you don’t feel comfortable in.

Grow your professional Network

The main goal in your career is to get from one level to the other, and this may be easier when you create acquaintances and relationships with people in that profession. Being an intern gives you more opportunities to connect with professionals that can be beneficial in the future.
