7 Summary of Week 2

This week, you’ve focused on the benefits of an internship or other form of work experience. You’ve considered some of the evidence available and looked at the personal development you can expect in terms of skills, self-awareness and confidence. You’ve also learned the value of networking and how that can enhance your future career as well as the work experience itself.

You should now be able to:

  • recognise the various benefits that work experience can provide
  • summarise some of the key skills that employers value
  • reflect on the personal development that can be facilitated through an internship or other work experience.

Next week, you’ll focus on what you can gain personally from undertaking an internship or other form of work experience.
