So back in September 2021, I decided that it was high time that I actually start applying for internships. And so, I applied for four of them. Well not all of them at the same time, but within the same month.
Turns out that I got all four of them and I was pretty overwhelmed by the workload. Three of them were actually hands on assignments and one of them was a paid internship that I really enjoyed. In fact, two of them were from different fields of the same company.
The hands on assignments were definitely a challenge, considering that they required me to code some exciting mini projects. The overall process took me around 2 to 3 weeks, as the internship period was for one month.
The paid internship was an eye opener altogether, because I had the opportunity to learn and create content on AI and it’s uses. And this gave me a deeper insight on what AI is all about; which I think is a great way to learn more about the field that you’ve chosen.
So here comes the key question – How do I apply for them?
Most internships would be listed under the jobs page on LinkedIn. If you aren’t familiar with what LinkedIn is, it is a platform where you can search for jobs and internships and it creates a digital resume type of profile that can be added to your CV. It can also be shared to recruiters as well.
Under the Jobs tab, type the field of choice and pick out internships and the results would be a list of jobs. You can pick out the one you like by reading the requirements and applying for it. And there you go, you’ve now applied for internships!
Now it’s your turn. Head over to LinkedIn and start applying!
