Short answer, absolutely.
Long answer, absolutely, because…
a programmer internship can help you in so many ways, ways that you didn’t even know about. There’s the experience side of things- working in a real business, dealing with clients and real life problems. Then there’s the knowledge side of things- you’ll learn so much more in a programmer internship than you ever would in a classroom. Not forgetting the opportunities that will come up through working with professionals- potential employers will actually see your work. And then there’s the social side of things- meeting people and making friends.
Let’s take a look at three people who invested in a programmer internship and see what they have to say.
Andrew, 23 from Auckland.
“I wasn’t sure about going through a programmer internship, but I’m so glad I did. Looking back now I can see how it helped me in so many ways. In fact, the job I have at the moment I gained directly through being an intern. I was working on a project with an outside party, and they liked my dedication. I was offered a job with them when my programmer internship was up, which I immediately accepted. Now I’m working full time in a growing company without even having to apply or go to an interview!”
Nira, 22 from India.
“The programmer internship was something I didn’t think I would get, but I applied anyway. I was in my final year at university, but I had heard a lot of people were having trouble finding jobs after they graduated. The biggest problem seemed to be lack of experience. That’s when I started to look into programmer internship and where I could apply in Auckland. I’m so glad I was offered a place, because I see other interns leaving here and walking into jobs all the time. It really gives me hope for the future that I can not only get a job here, but through that job stay in New Zealand.”
Chiho, 23 from China
“I came here as a student and my English wasn’t so good. I didn’t go out much because of that, and I didn’t make many friends, only a few people in my class. When the opportunity for a programmer internship came up, I applied, not only to help my career, but to meet people. And it’s been a great experience. Most of the other interns are around my age, and a lot are foreign to New Zealand. This is a great opportunity to make friends, because we are all in the same situation. We help each other practice our English. Applying for this programmer internship is the best thing that happened to me in New Zealand.”
