Most of us have experienced or are experiencing what it’s like to be an undergraduate or fresh graduate. It’s hard. You are time poor as a result of university requirements and have to work part-time to support yourself. Usually your job is in a completely unrelated industry to the one you’re studying because it’s hard enough to find employers that work with your university schedule, let alone finding ones that align with your studies.
Internships are important. Without one a student or graduate will struggle to get relevant work experience, build networks, learn practical knowledge and therefore will face difficulty finding full time employment.
