Why should I apply for an internship?

Take a look at what a previous Solent graduate intern thought about his internship.

In January 2017 Kundai Musara, a BA (Hons) Writing, Fashion and Culture graduate, was successful in gaining an internship as a marketing and PR executive at Hampshire County Council.

“This has put what I learnt on my course into use and I’ve gained more experience from it as well. Gaining that experience will make me more sellable to employers. It’s been definitely worth it.”
