One of the reasons that many people hesitate when it comes to applying for graduate jobs is that they don’t know what they want to do and aren’t ready to pick a career direction.
Enterprise’s internships cover so many skills: management, marketing, sales, business management and business management. If you love working with us then you can stay on but if not, these transferable skills are great career boosters.
One of the main advantages of doing a year-long internship is that you’ll get paid to do it. You’ll also get annual leave, so whilst you might not be spending an entire year abroad, you can definitely fit a few overseas trips in. You’ll also have some funds that allow you to stay somewhere decent, rather than a five dollar hostel.
There are many different placement years that you can do around the UK, with a range of businesses, from international companies to smaller local firms. Speak to your career service to find out more about the opportunities available.
It’s important to decide if you’re looking for experience in a specific industry or whether you want to look for a placement that offers transferable skills so that you can develop your CV and learn more about what you enjoy at work.
If you’ve always wanted to go abroad but also want to do a placement year, then it is possible to combine them both.
There are advantages to both a placement year and a gap year, but employers are generally always going to prefer on the job experience.
Enterprise offer internships that last up to a year around the UK where you’ll start picking up plenty of useful skills.
