An integral part of a degree programme, the internship is geared towards submerging students into an environment designed to equip them with occupational skills, experience and non-standard competencies. One of the key outcomes of an internship is getting to experience a specific industry and improve job-related skills through a hands-on experience. In this experience, the setting and the work methods that are expected to be used by students should be as close as possible to those in real-life conditions of a chosen career path.
Students are welcome to consult ICEF Career Centre on the internship opportunities. In addition to advising on specific internship opportunities, ICEF Career Centre operates an extensive workshops programme designed to help with job search, CVs and interviews. It is possible to receive personal coaching (for more details please go to Finding Employment).
One more source of advice as to how to find a way around in the job market or a summer internship is ICEF alumni. The alumni are often invited to host informal meetings where they share their knowledge of employers and job sectors or to act as mentors.
