Finding work can be a real challenge, especially if you don't have any experience. Yet to get experience you must first find a job. It's a nasty catch that can be difficult to get around but an internship is a good way to do it.
Internships provide work experience opportunities to university students, recent graduates and people considering career changes. Employers are willing to hire interns with little or no experience, especially if the intern is willing to accept little or no monetary compensation. However, the benefits of doing an internship go far beyond your pay cheque.
