The internship is seen as a “trial period” for some companies. This is why finding a good internship and being exemplary during this period is valuable. Indeed, this experience can open up significant opportunities for you. We will see why and how in this article.
An internship can lead to a permanent or fixed-term job
The search for an internship is often an important step in a young person’s school career. Indeed, an internship is a formative experience and some young people declare that their experience in a company has reinforced their future professional project. The best memories of an internship are often described positively by young people: confidence, project management, autonomy, support, responsibilities, etc. In most cases, being given autonomy is an asset noted by interns.
Therefore, an internship is a good way of putting into practice all the theoretical situations that they have learned in school. The evolution of the student in the company may lead to a job opportunity at the end of the internship. However, it is necessary to show the best of oneself during the internship, which is what we will analyze in the second part of this article.
Stack all the odds in your favor
The tutor can see the internship as a trial period experience before employment. They will see how the intern fits in the company, how they work and whether they assimilate the values of the company.
The student will be constantly assessed during their given assignments. They will have to accept both positive and negative feedback.
If they want to progress in the company, they must put themselves out there. This means that during their internship they must be able to bring ideas to the table and take initiative.
In order to evolve within the company where the intern is, it is important to talk to their tutor about their future plans. If the company evolves, there will be opportunities for recruitment. That’s why it’s important to show interest in the company throughout the internship period.
