So why should you join Industry Connect? Well that’s simple. So simple in fact, we’ve broken it down into these 5 reasons.
Be seen by a future employer
Qualifications are one thing, but if you really want stand out to any potential employer then you need experience.
It is this experience that will help you stand head and shoulders above any other candidates, especially if you have experience by the time you graduate.
Employers see someone with experience as less of a risk, more suited to the job and less time consuming to train.
Joining us will literally change your life
A software development internship can give you essential skills and experience, not only in your area of expertise, but with other aspects you may not even think about.
Many IT students, especially those from another country, do not have the social or interpersonal skills that many others have. Working with other people every day will help you with your communication skills, client relations and team work.
Meeting people and making friends, especially if you’re new to the country, can change your life.
Keep your options open
When you start your degree in IT you probably have some idea of what kind of developer you wanted to be. What you don’t realise is that there’s a good chance that will change once you actually start working in the industry.
Our software development internships will allow you to explore the different areas of the industry, giving you a taste of different fields and a chance to see if the one you majored in was the right one for you.
This kind of experience is extremely valuable in the long run, giving you the confidence that path you’re choosing is the right one. If you want to make the switch from Java to an iOS developer, then no problem, the option is there.
Meet the people who matter
Getting a job is more than just about having the knowledge. If you have the same qualifications and experience as the other guy, but the other guy was recommended by a friend, then who do you think is going to get the job?
Making connections, associates and friends is a massive part of any industry, and a software development internship with us is a great way to make those connections.
Being an intern is a fantastic way to get noticed by professionals in the business, and you can use this opportunity to impress them with your work ethic, knowledge and eagerness.
Learn something new every day
Interns are in a unique position to learn a lot in a short time. In fact, you may never have this opportunity again in your adult life.
You’re thrown in at the deep end, but have none of the responsibility if things go wrong. You’re surrounded by experienced professionals who want to take the time to show you how things work and to help you. You can make mistakes and will learn from them instead of getting fired!
It’s a perfect and unique opportunity that you won’t have a year from now, so grab it while you can.
