Did you do an internship?

How did you find your first internship?

I found my first internship to be excellent. It was my first "real" job, and it was nice to finally have some money. Smile

Never did an internship. Was hired by a company before I had even finished my first year of school. They helped pay for the rest of the schooling.

Wow... Sounds really cool. So did your job have any conflicts in time with your courses? Must be a busy life! But it's cool indeed~

Unpaid internship is not great, but there's many internship that YOU have to pay to work. That's just ridiculous. But sometimes you really need the experience and you end up doing it.
Not sure if it's legal though.

I did an internship in Ireland last year and I almost hated it. I found it in the old report of students at university. But there was an exploitation of intern and our job was not intersting at all. So good luck pour your research ! It's still a good experience to have Wink

Some companies offer internship as a condition for their scholarship.
So keep an eye on your school's scholarship notice board. Who knows, you might get some extra money and an internship, best of both world combined.

I did a project instead - built a website. Probably should have done an internship.

I have done a couple of internships when I was student. I found one by the contacts, but most of them I just found them on the internet or during company/student meetings.
I think these are great opportunities to learn new knowledge, apply the one you already have and create your first professionnal network!

You can find internships by asking your professors -- some of them might find a use for students in their labs to help them with some of the more basic tasks. They could also refer you to other professors who might need help if they don't themselves. They can also provide references for companies they might be familiar with.

Internships are really helpful because they provide a way for you to earn some experience without having a huge base of experience. Ideally, they would want people with more experience, but most companies are perfectly happy with students with zero to little experience.
