Internships and other work experiences

6 Summary of Week 3

At this stage, you should be feeling more confident about what a good work experience opportunity should offer and what employers might expect from you. You’ve looked at what you want to gain from the experience, considered your practical needs and explored a decision-making tool.

You should now be able to:

  • understand your rights and what you can expect from an employer
  • reflect on what you want to gain from your internship or other work experience
  • make more effective decisions about which opportunities to target.

Next week, you’ll move on to looking for opportunities and making effective applications.
