The Transition from Academia to The World of Work

Human Resources My name is Stephen McAllister, I was born and raised in the UK. I am a Masters graduate from the University of Leeds and a graduate from Keele University. Throughout, my 4 years of university I had learnt and acquired a wide range of theoretical knowledge in the fields of Business and Social Sciences.

I would like to think that I had learnt a lot during my studies and was well educated in organisational and business theory. During my studies I had the change to study a wide range of courses and felt that I was prepared for the world of work. The only problem was that after 2 degrees, I fell into the age old catch-22 situation of being over educated and under experienced for work. Applying for full time work during the announcement of the credit crunch meant that alas many organisations turned me down.

Human Resources

After month of search, I realised that in order to prove my skills and apply what I had acquired from university I would need to take on an internship to ground my skills, and use what I had studied in books to the world of work. When I joined Internship UK I was given a warm friendly welcome by the staff and other interns. I had the chance to settle in straight away.

The flexibility of work allowed me to establish my own personal work ethic and learn how to establish my own work life balance. Since my arrival, I had the chance to handle a multitude of tasks and responsibilities. On a day to day basis I worked closely with the Marketing and Sales departments and the IT department to provide co-operation and guidance when needed, and to help with the concerns of the other interns at Internship UK.

Human Resources The atmosphere and environment here was far above my expectations. Aside from learning new skills and applying myself. This internship has been a great opportunity for me to meet people from around the world and from a cultural perspective I have had the chance to broaden my horizons.

Overall, I have learnt a lot from this internship and have had the chance to apply my theoretical understandings in the world of business. In addition, this internship has given me the chance to develop a strong work ethic and the chance to be able to prove to myself and to those around me.

With this internship, I aim to continue learning all that is required to be successful in the modern age of business and to develop myself as a life long student.

Working in the Human Resources department

Human Resources LondonWhile I was about to finish the university, my biggest fear was: what am I going to do now? I was quite sure to have a complete theoretical knowledge concerning my field (social psychology), but practically I could not do anything! Fortunately by chance, I found the Internship-UK website and I found an excellent starting point to gather some work experience. Thus, I decided to apply for a one-year internship, in order to learn as much as I could.

It is amazing how fast I have been learning here, in Ltd! I am a member of the Human Resource department and it took only few days to be fully integrated. Since the first day, my manager did not hesitate to give me responsibilities. This has been helping me to grow both professionally and personally. Due to the several applications we receive every day and the high number of interns that compose our team, the Human Resource department is always full of work. This means that it is absolutely impossible to get bored!

Moreover, the members of our team are all kind and friendly people with a contagious Positive Mental Attitude. PMA makes the work hours just run quickly thanks to the jokes and the laughs always present among the interns. In this kind of environment, I realized how much I can learn from my colleagues even if we are all diverse in age, culture, and work experience. The team work is particularly encouraged therefore interns all share a common objective. In this environment it is essential to rely on each other to move forward together.

To sum it up, I can definitely state that I have learned more here, working in the Ltd. company, than in the 5 years of university. The knowledge that I have acquired is practical, rather than theoretical. This fact is the internship is helping me fill the gap between the university and the work market; a gap which is not easy to fill in. I feel that the experience I am having will definitely be helpful for my future career in the Human Resources department. After the few months that I have worked here, I am sure the decision to come was absolutely right.

My internship in HR was an amazing human experience

«My 6-month training course at Ltd in the Human Resources department was for me a very enriching experience and a springboard for my future.

In England, I had the opportunity to have a lot of responsibilities because the Anglo-Saxon system advocates the confidence in his trainees' work.

My numerous responsibilities within the company Ltd, allowed me to have a real outline on well-made tasks. I was really able to improve my skills in the field of Human Resources.

My training period at Internship-uk was thus complete and flexible because I was able as well to take charge of the recruitment by phone interviews with persons of any nationalities that of the management of the life in the London office. I was thus able to improve my English very easily and to trust more my capacities to communicate with people from different horizons during my internship.

As a trainee in London I also had the luck to have contact with various universities worldwide and I really increased my skills in the field of the recruitment.

This training course is the best professional and personal experience of my life, I met fabulous people both at work and in London. The life in London was fantastic and I shall keep immortal memories of this training course in London with Ltd during the summer.»

Boosting CV with Internship UK

Human Resources LondonI am a current graduate of the Manchester Metropolitan University with a BA(hons) in English. After my degree, I was only relying on my part-time job, which had nothing to do with the career that I wanted to pursue. I was applying for jobs even before I graduated but unfortunately I was not receiving any positive replies from the work posts simply because of my lack of experience. I therefore decided to do an internship to help me to boost my curriculum vitae and at the same time I was willing to move away from home and to get a gist of life which would also help me to build my own individuality as well as a career path.

Fortunately within my searches I came across Internship-UK. I decided to go with the placement offered because the website itself made me feel invited and the idea of working with people from different countries really intrigued me. I am currently doing an internship in Human Resource.

The reason why I chose this field is because it was the closest one to my degree and I always wanted to do my masters in communication and also to have a career that deal a lot with people. HR is also a very challenging post which keeps me going all the time. During my work placement in HR, I have been working on various skills such as recruitment, interviews, managing current staffs, mentoring new interns etc.

For me, working with Studios92 has been the best choice that I could have gone for because it gives me the opportunity to use my own initiatives as from day one. I felt very welcomed to bring in ideas and to form part of a team from the beginning itself.

I would definitely say that the social as well as the working experience has proven to be extremely fruitful in many ways and the fact that we are always working together and to bring a more modern and positive thinking in our daily life.

Internship-UK has been the perfect move in my life simply because I have gained a lot more than what I personally expected. I will absolutely encourage and invite people to join our internship crew.

A timeless experience working in Human Resources

hr human resources internship Hi everybody!

My name is Silvia, I still work in an Italian Company as PA and I chose to use my holiday to gain an Internship abroad in order to improve my English and professional skills.

I decided to do it by working because it would enable me to refine both aspects at the same time. It's really interesting to test your professional acquired skills in an international atmosphere. Without this experience I would never have discovered these benefits. I would never have had the possibility to share all my know-hows with a such a culturally diverse team. These kind of results are never written because anyone can describe them, you can feel and smell them in the air... but only by experiencing a true internship like this!

I believe that the exchange of different ideas, cultures, background, know-how, studies are priceless and everybody should test them at once. Having done this Internship and I feel like a winner right now, because I realize that I had spent my holiday in the best prospecting way. My English has improves incredibly and much of my working knowledge seems to have been enriched too. Thanks to my Internship UK experience, I am certain that I will increase and improve my career opportunities.

I will keep you informed!

A great opportunity and a worthwhile challenge

hr human resources internship During my Erasmus program at the University of Surrey I found out that a lot of people studying psychology go for a placement year after finishing their second year. A year work experience and then back to university. I had no work experience in the field of Psychology, neither in Human Resource. I started looking and found Internship UK. After my application things went really fast. I have worked for one week now. The beginning was really nice. The team is friendly, young and motivated. It is a great challenge, but if you have the change to take it, do it!

"I decide to do this internship and boost my CV"

Hello! I am Leila, from Brazil and I am completing a 3 month internship at I have been living in London for nearly 4 years and the strong competitive in the market made me realise how important is the experience in an international company in order to get a good job in the future. For that reason I decide to do this internship and boost my CV for my future career.

I am student of Business Management course, with high interest in human resources area. Therefore , after 1 year of University I decide to do an internship in HR department and I am very pleased to be accepted by Within this company I was able to put in practice the knowledge I acquire with my studies plus the previous work experience I had.

Different from common internship, the provide me the great opportunity to have real responsibilities which made me grow so much faster than sit down and watch professionals working. Once you have the target to meet and responsibilities on your back, the challenge was really big, but the results were gratifying.

Furthermore, working in an international environment, with people from different countries, different cultures, made me improve my personality so much once we could share so many ideas and also experience. Put into practice my English was also a big point to say, once I was speaking English all the time with the staff and future candidates. The improvement is so obvious that nowadays I am not thinking in Portuguese, my mother tong, but in English!

The Joys of Recruitment and Human Resources

Working in the HR department, I was responsible for all the stages of recruiting people and also the stages after recruitment, which is taking care of the well being and productivity of the staff. I manage to do interviews face to face and over the phone, and I was able to learn so much from each of them.

As I said before, I had a lot of responsibilities on my back but I had a great time to support me. I was always in contact with great professionals and interns who were always able to help me and teach me whenever I needed it.

I am pleased to say that I learn so much and I believe I am now in advance compared to my university colleagues, as I will be able to match my experience and academic knowledge to do my assignments/exams and maybe come with a different point of view, in a more practical way. So, I am not only sure about how this internship will help me to build my future career but also to complete my studies with success.

I am pretty sure that my decision to have work experience in London was the best to be made, because no matter where I will go in my future, I know it will be well recognized in any country. Also, I made so many friendships now, that I have friends all over Europe, and I would like to maintain forever.

New Experience in Human Resources

Hi! My name is Veronika and I have decided for an internship in HR. Why this decision? I have a simple answer for that. I'm finishing my bachelor studies next year but I have no experience in my field. I wanted to have a more clear idea about what to choose as my major on ma future MA studies and also to gain some idea “how does it work in reality”. And why in London? London is a challenge for everybody. I wanted to improve my English, meet new people, experience the life in such a big city.

It was the best choice I have ever done. This internship taught me more then I expected. Not only in HR field, but it also developed my personality. At a university everybody is on his own. You study for yourself, do exams for yourself, the responsibility is only on yourself. Here I realized that whatever I do, I am responsible not only for my work but also for the whole team. I learned how to organize my work, how to deal with variety of situations and I improved my communication skills and English of course.

As an HR, I learned here more then during my whole studies. Evaluating application forms and interviews, wheather over the phone or face to face, and the most difficult thing- taking decisions. All of this helped me to put my theoretical knowledge into practice and realize what from my knowledge is important and useful and what is not. I gained much more confidence in communication with people and I learned that in English. I had also some duties and responsibilities in our office. Integration of new interns, keeping the motivation of the team as high s possible and organizing their working time. I learned to solve unexpected situations and that's experience which you really cannot gain at University.

I had a great time here. I got to know a lot of interesting and really clever people from all over the world. People from different countries and cultures from different universities with their own approaches to work and new ideas. What we have in common is the motivation to learn more and more and to exchange our ideas. We created really positive and friendly athmosphere in the office and the team anybody would wish to work in.

Living in London was also amazing experience for me. London is big, it's multicultural and full of really interesting people and opportunities. It's hard to describe it, you just have to come and see it. You can come for a weekend and see Tower Bridge, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Soho, Camden Town but you need to live here for at least couple of months to get the spirit of this city. And I simply fall in love with it.

As I said before. This internship was the best choice ever. I learned a lot, made new friends and I hope to start my career in London after finishing my University. In addition, now I'm sure that HR is really what I want to do in my future. I become much more responsible and organized person. I learned how to communicate with people and I became much more confident. And maybe the most important thing I learned here is that with positive attitude and hard work you can achieve everything you want.

Thank you for this opportunity. It was fantastic experience for me.

Human Resources Intrnship - A Great Work Experience Oportunity

Human Resources LondonHaving been an active member in the team managing the Human Resources department with Ltd was a wonderful experience for me. As an intern for 3 months I had the opportunity to have my own insight of the possibilities that an internship in England offers.

We can't really compare an Internship in England and one in France. I have to say that it was the best experience I could ever have had to learn that much about the main aspects of Human Resources. And not only about Human Resources but I also learnt a lot about England.

During this Internship in Human Resources, I had the chance to handle a lot of different responsibilities, to deal with internal (staff management, organisation of the office, promotions, shiftlists) and external (recruitment) HR, to manage my own team with people from different educational backgrounds and nationalities.

Working with all this people, doing interviews, personal meetings and brainstorming improved a lot my communication skills and my ability to speak foreign languages (obviously english but also to consolidate my basics in Italian and German).

The relations with the team in London were also very enriching. Visiting them to work with them and to enjoy spare time together in the beautiful city of London was an amazing experience. I really enjoyed both, the time I spent working and the time I spent with my colleagues, that are now more my friends than just colleagues.

This is not only a training period in my life, this is a great life experience!

If I had to do it again I would surely apply with Internship-uk. The HR team is always happy to deal with new motivated applicants and I would be the most motivated one!
