The speed with which the IT industry changes is frightening. It seems like if you’re out of the game for more than 6 months, everything you know has become useless!
The flip side to that is, it only takes 6 months to become up-to-date with all the latest goings-on in the industry, and there’s no better way to do that, than with an internship with Industry Connect.
Our internship is specifically designed to boost your knowledge of software development and help launch your career in IT. Perfect for students, post-graduates, recent immigrants, and even people considering changing careers entirely, our software developer internship is absolutely worth it. Here are six reasons why…
New Zealand work experience
An Industry Connect internship 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. Industry Connect’s specially designed software developer internship will give you the experience you need to at least be noticed by any potential employer.
Get ahead in the job search
Any potential employer will usually be more concerned with your work experience than your qualifications. A software developer 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, let alone start a career in IT.
Find a job through us
A good way to think of our internship with us is to think of it as a really long job interview. Here at Industry Connect, we have a significant proportion of our staff made up from previous interns. And many of our other interns went on to work for our partners in the IT sector.
Choose a career path
A career in IT comes with it many possibilities, and our 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 C++, but find that Business Intelligence is for you, then this is the time to try different waters without committing.
It’s also about who you know
Knowing someone is half the battle when it comes to landing a job. An internship with us here at Industry Connect 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.
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. Industry Connect’s software developer internship 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, 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!
