The importance of the right internship
We always talk about how important it is to gain quality experiences and building a strong portfolio. But why is this important? And how important is it really?
The answers are many, and we wont talk about them all, but it’s pretty straight forward – you simply practice the learnings you get from school by putting it to use in real scenarios. And by doing so, you learn how to use the theoretical knowledge you’ve aquired to tackle real problems, execute on stuff that will have a real impact and find your role in a real organization in the real world.
And how important it really is? Well, without a proof of ability, someone or something to validate your skills in the field, your chances of scoring that dream job of yours are much lower than if you have real experience to show and someone who would vouch for your talent.
Our Upbeaters has got it figured out!
When we have accepted an Upbeater, we can voche for them and provide a validation for Project Owners that they are working with exceptionally skilled and innovative students. But our Upbeaters also know that it requires dedication, and that hard work is what will pay off. As a proof that our Upbeater’s have been putting in the effort, they have recently gotten impressive offers from great companies to do their internship and projects at. From high growth companies like NA-KD, SYB (Soundtrack Your Brand) and Tobii Technologies, to dream internships at creative agencies in both Stockholm and Paris.
We’re very proud of the hard work that our amazing Upbeaters have put in to get their dream internships which are helping them get one step closer to reaching their career goals in the future.
