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!

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
