Interships allow new graduates or newcomers to gain some work experience in their chosen industry. Many industries offer internships. The best strategy is to do an internet search such as “internship +name of the industry or occupation,”. Various educational institutions have compiled a list of internship websites and we provide a link to some of them below. Many colleges and universities also offer “co-op” work experience as part of their educational programs.
