Why intern at UWLSU?
Joining UWLSU as an intern gives you the opportunity to do some hands-on work in a professional environment in the HE sector. As an intern you're not just there to get coffee or run errands but you're there to gain actual work experience. Internships help by teaching you more about the career path you are pursuing, while also making life-changing opportunities and experiences for students. Think of it like this – internships are a way to test drive possible jobs and explore different career options.
The first year of full-time work can be a bit of a culture shock. From the seemingly endless battle to secure employment to long, non-negotiable working hours and the drudgery of the daily commute, the first year of ‘freedom’ can make even the most optimistic graduate pine for the days of 9am lectures and library fines.
By giving you a taste of life in your chosen field, an internship at UWLSU not only gives you the connections and experience you need to help secure a graduate role (thereby helping you avoid the endless job hunt), it also gives you a better idea of what to expect and helps lessen the jolt of entering full-time employment.
