Obtaining an internship, or more, an internship in computer science, is a success in the commitment of a student’s future profession. Some universities of applied sciences require these students to do work placements in companies at the end of each academic year to help them find their way in the professional world.
Why do an internship?
During his or her academic courses at university, each student is content to learn and assimilate the theories taught by his or her teachers. This theoretical training alone is not enough to cope with the professional life that awaits them once they graduate. They need something else to cope with it. This is where the work placement in a company comes in. This internship will allow him to immerse himself in the professional world. During the internship period, the student will be able to find out if the job he has chosen is the right one for him, if he has made a good career choice. This internship will also allow him/her to discover other facets of life other than university and to influence him/her to already take on professional responsibilities.
The advantages of a computer internship
There are many jobs based on information and communication technologies these days. For a student, opting for an internship in this field can be more than beneficial in his future job. All the activities of large companies, and even SMEs are based on IT. Being comfortable and having experience in this field is a significant asset in a future job interview with other candidates who have not done an internship related to IT. Even before doing an internship in computer science, it is also beneficial to follow training courses on certain themes in this field to be able to master them as soon as possible.
Where to find internships
The first step to doing an internship is to search online. Apart from websites, it is also possible to get information from bulletin boards. It is not uncommon that internship offers are not posted there. It is also best to go directly to the companies’ offices and apply for an internship. In addition, some universities of applied sciences offer internships directly.
