Finding Programming jobs in Auckland can be a real challenge, especially if you have no experience. And of course, you can’t get experience without a job. It’s the old Catch 22 that has graduates pulling their hair out in exasperation.
But don’t panic! There is a way to get out of this vicious cycle; an internship with Industry Connect.
An internship with us will provide work experience to students, post graduates and even people considering changing careers entirely. It’s the perfect way to break into the IT industry and grab one of those Programming jobs in Auckland. Below we’ve listed the main reasons why you should seriously consider an internship with Industry Connect.
Invaluable work experience
An internship with Industry Connect will provide the opportunity to gain hands on work experience that you simply won’t get in a classroom setting. You’ll be very lucky to find a company that will hire someone straight out of university without any experience. An internship with us will give you the experience you need to land one of those Programming jobs in Auckland.
Find that edge in the job search
Any potential employer will usually be more concerned with your work experience than your qualifications. An 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 is needed to even reach the interview stage! So for that first job in software development, experience is key.
Have Programming jobs in Auckland waiting at the end
A good way to think of Internships is to think of them as a really long job interview. Here at Industry Connect we have a significant proportion of our staff made up from previous Interns. Full time workers who came to us through our “Job Ready” programme that we offered. And many of our other interns went on to work for our business partners and associates in the industry.
Choose a career path
The world of IT is a huge one, and there are many different careers available to you. An internship is a great way to test the water and see if this is the right path for you. Our intern programme offers many different subjects, so if you’ve trained in Java, but find that iOS App Development is for you, then this is the time to try different waters without committing. A great way to discover what your first job in software development will be.
Meet the right people
Knowing someone is half the battle when it comes to landing Programming jobs in Auckland. An internship with us is the perfect way to get 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, especially in a city this small.
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. Working with us is a great way to show that you’ve taken in what you were taught and that you can apply it in a work environment. This not only adds to your confidence, but your resume too. And when you go for an interview for your first Programming jobs in Auckland, 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!
