Do you know the difference between
work experience, internship, apprenticeship and volunteering?
Work experience is excellent for people looking to gain a quick, general overview into a specific industry, company or role. Employers can help people develop these qualities and influence their future career choices by providing them with first-hand work experience.
An internship is usually a fixed-term work placement offered to students and graduates during university term time. It is work-based learning within a business or company to develop skills in a chosen profession.
An apprenticeship is a work-based training program that trains a worker to become skilled in a particular trade. It combines hands-on work with classroom learning to train the apprentice. Apprenticeships are considered full-time employment.
A volunteer is a someone who freely offers to take part in an enterprise or undertake a task for a company or organisation. The driving force is your passion and desire to help-out society or a community.
