Starting Somewhere

Turning your internship into a job

Turning an internship into a job – the guide

Doing an internship and being amazing is one thing, but it’s only a means to an end. This episode shows you how other people have transitioned to the workplace, from biotech to banking. We give you the skinny on networking, mentors and making the jump.

We look at some research about how internships lead to jobs, how degrees help and why internships are not going away and what’s going on in Portugal! We ask some super accomplished mentors what they look for when they choose who to share their wisdom with, and what you can expect from the process.

We also get the low-down on LinkedIn, using it post-internship and the three kinds of contacts you need in your network. And the two different types of contacts in your IRL network. This episode is a jazzy kickstop to our series on internships and employability, we wish you the best of luck as you start somewhere!
