Q.&A. Session.

Question: Why should I be interested in interships? 

Answer:

  • If you don't get a part or full time job right out of school you may want to apply to an internship to begin getting practical experience in your field.
  • Internships are offered everywhere around the world and are also a great way to begin networking and learning about the art industry from the ground up even if you do get a job. Donating one day a week can pay dividends in connections and knowledge. 
  • You should always have a list of internship opportunites that you think would be a good fit for your career goals.
  • When applying for an internship make sure to play up your skills, polish up your resume and focus on your accomplishments. Remember, getting an internship is often just as competitive as gettting a job and sometimes even more so, so don't act like just because you may not be getting paid that you don't have to try. Always be a professional, and remember that interships lead to better jobs if you put your best foot forward.  
  • Common places to start interning in the arts include museums, non-profit organizations, galleries, as a studio assistent and really, as many different art related places of employ as you can locate. There are always internship opportunites around you, but you may have to seek them out by asking people in the industry or field you want to start working in.
