There are a number of ways to get yourself an internship. The most common way is by applying online – there are some great websites that can help you find placements and internships. Here are my top picks…
At the top of my list is Milkround, The UK’s most widely used student and graduate job website. On here you will find thousands of graduate jobs, schemes and internships around the UK. As well as giving you access to loads of great job opportunities, they also have some great free resources to help you with job applications, writing your CV, and cover letters.

The website has a lot of really helpful information including top internship jobs, reviews written by students, employee information and an advice page containing all the information you could ever want to know about how to take the first steps in your career.
3. TARGET Jobs
