Are you currently considering whether or not to follow an internship program? Stop considering and start doing! Here are our top 5 reasons why you should become an intern:
- Get firsthand experience for your future career – A number of us a faced with the dilemma of not knowing if we’ve made the right career choice. Having the opportunity to intern allows you to decide if your choice of studies really matches your career dreams.
- Be one step ahead when applying for a job – Nowadays the majority of job adverts and listings ask for ‘experienced’ employees. Being a newly graduated student often means that you may not have the necessary experience which is needed for the position in question. However, by completing an internship placement with us, you gain valuable experience which you may wish to include in your CV in order to give you a preference over other candidates.
- Develop valuable intercultural skills – Living, breathing and working in a new country is a challenge. Besides having to adapt to your new life, you must also adapt to the culture which isn’t always easy. The language, the traditions, the way of life… these might be completely opposite to what is normal for you. However, as an intern you become part of the culture and learn valuable skills which help you to adapt to most situations you are faced with.
- Explore a new country – Interning isn’t only about work. Like a normal job, you have your own free time to fill. The best way to do this is to explore the country. Malta has so much to offer – the sea, the food, the history, the parties. Go out, discover it and build memories.
- Challenge yourself – It’s easy to sometimes get too comfortable in a situation or period in your life. For a lot of people, this leads to boredom and frustration. By creating a challenge, you push yourself and create new limits. Changing country, leaving family and friends and becoming an intern might not be an easy choice for you to make. However, it’s sometimes best to think less and do more, the outcome is very rewarding!
