Land your first Internship in UK

4 Min Read

By Usman Nadeem Nizam


As I mentioned, UK experience is what matters the most while hunting for a tier 2 sponsored job, and you need to land an Internship.

Therefore, in this post, I will be sharing how you can land your first internship/volunteer job in the UK through which you can get valuable experience.

Since you are a student and don’t have UK work experience as you didn’t live in the UK before which is obvious but there is nothing much to worry about since that’s where the real journey starts from.

SO DON’T just keep sending the same CV randomly to all the vacancies that are advertised thinking that you have applied everywhere and someone might just contact you back. No! trust me your CV is going in the rough paper stack.

Why is that so? Firstly, you sent the same CV everywhere so let’s say you have a finance background and you put all your skills of finance in your CV and you posted it at a marketing job vacancy, what are the odds of you receiving a call?

DON’T just randomly create a CV… You may have the right skills for a particular job but due to limited space available in your CV you just tried to put all the major skills that you have. Congratulations! you are so talented…good for you. A job for an office administrator doesn’t require you to be a quantum computer scientist but some admin experience.

So don’t apply randomly and don’t create a CV randomly.

INSTEAD.. Choose an industry and its niche or maybe multiple niches. Find companies in those niches, if they are having any vacancies. Even if they don’t think they are not hiring they might not have advertised but they may be in a hiring process.

So call the HR department ask them that you want to speak to the relevant person if need be and ask the relevant person if they have any vacancy and how/whom you can email your CV. This will create an impression that you have made an effort and the HR person will even remember your name when he/she comes through your CV.

ALSO .. Research about your niche and company and identify what skills they required and mention your skills in your CV according to the particular niche which THEN you can probably send it to all the companies in that particular niche of companies. In this way, your CV will be more relevant and will have much more chances of being considered for the next phase. Mention how you acquired that skill by either working in an organization in your home country, executing any university project, or by taking part in any activity, etc. Also please add some of your personal interest too as nobody would want a boring person in their office naturally.

IMPORTANTLY ..We as a nation don’t like to consult with a counselor who naturally has more knowledge than an average individual and has an integral role in any civilized society therefore, please don’t ignore your career counselor at university who will guide you how to create a professional CV for a particular niche and also will help you to find and identify vacancies professionally. This will be a great help so it should be your go-to option at all times.

And PLEASE Don’t be shy to hire recruitment agencies such as Prospect, Milkround, student job, student circus, etc which are extremely helpful in finding any student-related internship or volunteer work, trust me you’ll get what you pay for and you don’t want any stone unturned especially when you hunting for a job.

BROTHERS AND SISTERS.. If you can think about going to UK by spending so much consider yourself blessed and don’t forget to do SADAQAH (CHARITY) because there are kids who don’t even get new clothes on Eid because they can’t afford it, forget about them going to school.  Do Sadaqah and INSHALLAH see how the success follows you.

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours nowadays, but I
    by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if
    all site owners and bloggers made good content as
    you probably did, the internet can be much more helpful than ever

    I oversee a vape store website directory and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that additionally offers for sale CBD items. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has written to use to claim that our account has been limited and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop submission site. We do not offer CBD items such as CBD oil. We only provide online marketing professional services to CBD companies. I have visited Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Health and wellness Store and if you take a good peek, you will see that they offer a somewhat wide-ranging variety of CBD goods, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement solution. It emerges that PayPal is administering contradictory standards to different companies. As a result of this limitation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has restrained my payment options and right now, I am intensely contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have consulted with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law firm in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is completely unlawful and discriminatory as it ought to be applying an uniform criterion to all companies. I am still to speak to a different lawyer from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. In the meantime, I would be very appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    But just imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts
    more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with
    pics and videos, this site could certainly be one of the very best in its
    field. Very good blog!
