THINGS I'VE NOTICED WHEN APPLYING FOR INTERNSHIPS AFTER UNIVERSITY:

What I've got: A relevant degree. An all round 10 piece portfolio. Social, organisational & relevant software skills. A desire to learn and work (for free!) What employers want:
  1. A relevant degree
  2. A decent portfolio
  3. Social and organisational skills
  4. Relevant software knowledge
  5. Someone willing to learn.
  6. Someone willing to work for free.
  7. Experience
    Are you kidding me?! Even if I make it to interview and do well and feel great about everything. This experience catch-22 is killing me. I want to work! I want the experience!
