How To Get An Internship

An internship is a great way to get a jumpstart on your dream job. Let Kidzworld help you get started with How To Get An Internship!

Breaking into competitive job markets is tough. Lots of people want jobs in fields like the music or movie business, fashion, advertising and publishing. Internships are a great way to get your foot in the door.

What Is An Internship?

An internship is a temporary position that provides on the job training. Internships can last anywhere from a few months to a few years, with the idea that you will gain valuable work experience and meet people who can help you get a job afterward. Some internships are paid, but many are not. The upside is that many companies hire their interns once their apprenticeship is finished.

Where Do I Find Internships?

Employers love interns because they’re inexpensive and often do the work other employees don’t like to do. You can find internships in almost any field. To find an internship, first decide what kind of career you’d like to gain experience in. For example, if you’d like to work in publishing, think about which magazines you like, then check out their websites to see if they have internship programs. If you want to work in fashion, research local designers. Don’t forget about checking with your teachers—your school may also have internship programs set up with local businesses.

What Does An Intern Do?

Depending on which field you enter, an intern can do everything from fetching the morning coffee to styling a photo shoot. But most of the time you’ll get stuck doing the dirty work that needs to get done. Sometime the tasks you get assigned aren’t as glam as you imagined. But just remember the valuable experience you’re gaining. Everybody has to pay their dues before they can hit the big time!

You need to clear things up with your best friend, and express to her what you feel because friendship requires open communication for it to last. Likewise, you should also take into consideration that not because she`s your best friend and she knows that you like this guy, she`s not allowed to be friends and eventually have a romantic relationship with this guy. Love does not follow a first come first serve basis, that`s reality.  Now, if you really love or like that person then you should be happy for him. True love means putting someone else`s happiness before your own EVEN IF you`re not part of that happiness. There`s a reason for everything, someday this will all make sense. :)
