OWN YOUR INTERNSHIP

OWN YOUR INTERNSHIP

DO YOU REALLY NEED AN INTERNSHIP?

Studying alone is not sufficient preparation for life after education. It is critical that you invest in your professional development to make sure that you are ready and confident to leave education and step into a strategic career move rather than start your career out of a need of necessity. However, we feel that the mainstream path of internships has limitations. So we have developed a series of programs that aim to reframe the way you look at Internships

DO YOU KNOW YOUR FIRST CAREER STEP?

NO IDEA

When asked ‘What career do you want to pursue after graduation?’, 60% of students answered they didn’t know, and why would you!!? If you have no idea then taking an internship is probably not the right move for you. To get the full value of an internship you’re going to need to commit a good amount of time, so why would you give up this valuable resource in a career path you’re not sure you want to pursue? There is a better option.

I THINK I KNOW

You may have an idea about your first step into the world of work or maybe you’re currently thinking about a few options in front of you, great, but maybe holding off committing to a full blown internship is the best move for now. It would be wise to dip your toe into your assumptions to make sure they’re what you imagine them to be. It’s about testing with the minimal amount of time, but the maximum amount of impact for your decision.  

I KNOW

If you’re pretty sure you know your next career step and you’ve done your research and confident that it’s an area you want to get relevant work experience in then it’s time for the internship to get the all important practical experience and industry connections. However, if you feel that paying an organisation to find you that dream internship is the best next step, you’re wrong. You’re very wrong. There are far better and cheaper options open to you.

EXPERIENCESHIP

We developed our Experienceship program specifically for those that have no idea what they want to do in their career path. The program takes you on your own individual career exploration in inspiring environments that introduce you to a range of career opportunities (including launching your own startup). You’ll hear from industry experts in a diverse range of industries and solve real work projects to boost confidence in transferable work skills.

IMMERSION

At Corkscrew we felt there needed to be a way for students to get a realistic view of a particular industry/occupation through relevant practical project work related to the role, while meeting industry experts and up-skilling through relevant structured training. With the above in mind we created our Industry Immersion programs that focus on providing an in depth practical learning experience to explore your chosen industry.

INTERNSHIP

Most people fail to see that it’s the whole internship journey that makes you more employable in your chosen career field, not just the actual work part. If you’re using a third party provider to source you an internship then you’re missing critical skill development on how to find your perfect position, how to showcase your skills and how to nail down that dream position. You’ve heard the saying ‘give a man a fish?’ well the same goes for internships….right?!?
