Describe how you felt on your first day in your internship
On the first day of my internship, I was pretty excited to start working as a web developer. I joined university after having applied (unsuccessfully) for many web development jobs after being made redundant from my first web dev position. To start a paid internship within a year of starting University was a great feeling and showed that I hadn’t been unsuccessful due to lack of skills.
What key skills have you learnt through your internship and how do they link to your course/ career goals?
Would you recommend other UWE Bristol students take up an internship and why?
I would 100% recommend to other students to take up an Internship. The work experience was an invaluable contribution towards real-world relevant experience listed on my CV which, ultimately, I feel helped in me landing a fantastic placement job between my 2nd and 3rd years of University. I was also offered continued, permanent part-time work during my 2nd year as a result of a successful internship over the summer. Shout out to all at Believe.digital (especially Rob), it’s a great company with a brilliant working atmosphere and I’d 110% recommend it as a place for anyone to work at as an intern; everyone is super helpful when starting out and if you don’t know something, it really isn’t an issue, just ask.
