Today’s job market is a very competitive one: apart from an exemplary CV, employers expect you to have professional experience at a young age as well as excellent people skills. This is when the Permission Paradox comes into play – you can’t get a job without experience, but you can’t get experience without a job. If you have been asking yourself how to land a job without previous experience, the answer is – an internship. We asked our very own intern what her thoughts were on the benefits of an internship:

It takes time and exposure to become professional. Without a doubt the greatest career catch-22 that young employees face is getting hired without previous experience. Internships have a lot to offer if you want to take your first step in your industry of choice – it’s a safe environment where you can learn from your mistakes as well as excel any other skills that are expected in a professional setting.
