Even in Europe, internships are a hot topic. In a recent edition of the British Financial Times, writer Robert Orr describes the internship market in the UK. Even in the UK, he writes:
"Graduate unemployment is at painfully high levels... with one in five of the graduates who entered the labour market last year failing to find work... The recession has meant that many fewer organisations are prepared to hire university leavers who have not had any work experience."
As such, and parallel to the current American climate, students have been turning to part-time work and internship opportunities to give them an advantage in finding a job post-graduation.
In Orr's article, an intern in Germany, Alexandre Fraysse, gives his fellow interns and intern-seekers advice, "If you want to prove yourself you have to work hard, make sacrifices, be diligent and motivated."
Orr and his interviewee Mr. Lyons of the British, Intern Aware, warn students of the "'Worrying' growth of an industry that charges students to arrange internships for them." Addressing this:
Interns looking for internships here at the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce's Intern Connect, will never be charged for their searches or registration. Intern Connect is a completely free service to all chamber members and students looking for internships in the Greater Boston area.
