Industrial Placements, Internships and Work Experience

A good degree is important to employers but organisations also want graduates to demonstrate that they have undertaken some work experience. Industrial placements, Internships and other forms of work experience give you an insight into the working environment and help you develop skills that you can use within your degree. Treat your search for a placement as you would approach a graduate job. There can be a lot of competition for placements with companies using a selection process similar to graduate jobs. Getting advice on your application could help you identify search strategies through both traditional and speculative approaches.
