If you’re interested in a career as a programmer, then you need to be up-to-date with the latest goings on in the world of software development.

If you did a course in HTML ten years ago, or have a bit of experience with Javascript, then I’m afraid you’re in for a shock. The software development industry changes at such a rapid pace, there’s no room for dinosaurs. It’s a brave developer that takes more than two weeks for a holiday!

This fast-paced world is the reason Industry Connect have created a programming internship. It is specifically designed to boost your knowledge of the IT industry and help find launch your career in software development.

The internship is perfect for students, post graduates and even people considering changing careers entirely.

Work experience is the key to finding a job

You’ll be very lucky to find a company that will hire someone straight out of university without any experience. Thankfully, our programming internship will provide the opportunity to gain hands-on work experience that you simply won’t get in a classroom setting. Our programming internship is specifically designed to give you the experience you need to have a chance in a job interview.

Qualifications aren’t everything

Any potential employer will usually be more concerned with your work experience than your qualifications. A programming internship with us is the perfect way to get the work experience you need. Many employers specifically state on their job listings that an internship or equivalent experience is needed to even reach the interview stage.

There might even be a job at the end

Here at Industry Connect we have a significant proportion of our staff made up from graduates of previous intakes. A good way to think of our programming internship is to think of it as a really long job interview.  And many of our other interns went on to work for our partners in the IT sector.

Choose a career path

The world of IT is a huge one, and there are many different options available to you for a career. A programming internship is a great way to test the water and see if this is the right path for you. Our program offers many different subjects, so if you’ve trained in Javascript, but find that Blockchain is the future for you, then this is the time to test the water without committing.

Make contacts in the business

Knowing someone is half the battle when it comes to getting a job. Our programming internship is the perfect way to meet people in the industry, and more importantly, let them get to know you. It never hurts knowing someone who’s in a position to employ, recommend or even just put down as a reference.

Use your knowledge and gain confidence

There’s a big difference in what you learn sitting in a classroom and using that knowledge in the real world. Our programming internship is a great way to show that you’ve taken in what you were taught and that you can apply it in a real-world environment. This not only adds to your confidence, but your resume too. And when you go for an interview, you’ll have no problems saying “Yes, I can do that.” And unlike those without experience, you’ll be able to back it up with examples!
