Let’s face it: when you’re about to graduate, the months counting down to joining the “real world” are nothing short of scary. For most of our academic lives, we know what’s gonna happen next: another semester, another bunch of subjects, and maybe a bigger set of friends. But now that we’re about to leave school, we’re not entirely sure of what’s to come. There are movies we can watch and people we can talk to, but we don’t really know what it’s like to actually be working until we’re in the “real world” ourselves.
But there’s actually one less-scary thing that’s close to it: internships. It’s a great way to check out the companies you want to work for and, if things go well, at least you already have a foot in the door. Not to mention that you’re gonna learn new skills, develop the ones you already have, and get a feel of being a professional. We rounded up some companies you might be interested in, so if you’re ready, get out that CV and check out what the working world has to offer.
