6 Summary of Week 4

This week, you’ve looked at how to find work experience and how to make the most effective applications. You’ve learned about typical sources of internship and other work experience vacancies, how to access the hidden job market, and you’ve focused on how to make your applications more effective.

You should now be able to:

  • locate suitable work experience opportunities
  • use social media to your advantage
  • present yourself more effectively in written applications.

Next week, you’ll focus on presenting yourself effectively in person.
