An IT internship is a great way to gain practical experience in your field of interest, build your resume and make valuable connections in the IT industry. Here are 5 reasons why…

Gaining Relevant Experience

Internships provide students and recent graduates with real, hands-on experience in their desired fields.

Having genuine experience allows you to apply your knowledge and skills in a real-world setting, allowing you to grow and develop your abilities. This practical experience can also provide a better understanding of the industry, the job and what it takes to be successful in that role.

Building Your CV

An internship is a great way to build your CV, showing that you have relevant experience and skills to offer an employer. It also demonstrates your commitment and passion for your chosen area, as well as your ability to work well with others.

Having an internship on your resume can also set you apart from other applicants who may only have classroom experience, giving you an advantage in a job application.


Internships often involve working alongside professionals in your area, providing the opportunity to build valuable connections with people who can help you in your career.

This includes mentors, colleagues, and even potential employers. The connections you make during an internship can be invaluable for your future job search, providing a network of people who can vouch for your skills and experience.

Understanding the Workplace Culture

Internships also provide a glimpse into the culture and work environment of a company, allowing you to see what it’s really like to work there. This is especially important if you are new to that country and culture.

A company’s culture can greatly impact your satisfaction and success in your role. By participating in an internship, you can get a feel for the company’s values, work ethic, and overall atmosphere, helping you determine if it’s the right fit for you.

Improving Your Job Prospects

Finally, internships can help improve your job prospects after graduation. Many companies look for candidates with relevant experience and internships can provide just that. Additionally, internships often lead to job offers, as companies are often impressed with the work of their interns and want to hire them on a full-time basis.

We offer IT internships to help you land a job

An IT internship can open many doors for you, from gaining relevant experience to building valuable connections.

There’s also another advantage that many people don’t consider; friendships. You’ll be working alongside other interns, students and graduates your age, many of whom are new to the country and don’t have many friends.

Here at Industry Connect, we take great pride in helping relationships form, great friendships that last for many years. We hold social gatherings to help people get to know one another and practice their social and language skills- an invaluable occasion if you’re newly arrived in New Zealand or you’re English isn’t as great as you would like.
