Don’t know where to start? Start with an internship

OK, the first place you need to go for paid graduate internships is Essex Interns.

Heard of Essex Interns? You should have done, they’re magicians. They create real and graduate internship opportunities just for Essex 2017 graduates to help you take that first career step. A graduate internship can go a long way to building your CV.  

Sign up so that Essex Interns have your CV, your details and your job preferences and they’ll go out and create an internship in a sector and location of your choice, often tailored just for you!

You still have to apply but you’ll ONLY be competing with Essex graduates for these internships.

Last year Essex Interns successfully placed over 100 Class of 2016 University of Essex graduates into internships. Many of these graduates were offered permanent positions on completion of their placements!

But don’t just take our word for it:

“I applied for research assistant and psychology assistant jobs and work experience but was struggling to get my foot in the door of the mental health sector.

I've gained so much both in the field and in general things like administration and event planning. It's been quite a varied role which I've really enjoyed.

I have a wealth of new skills and work experience for my CV and it’s given me exposure to working with and supporting adults with mental health needs. I recently interviewed to become a Mental Health Support Worker at Creative Support and got told straight after that I had got the job!”
Jessica Holland, BA Psychology, 2016 graduate, Support Session Worker Intern for Creative Support
