Register with Inside Careers and sign up for our email alerts in the sectors you are interested in to receive the latest vacancies, deadline round ups, career advice and more!
Decide which career sector you are most interested in – you can give yourself a better chance of success in consultancy or banking by applying for insight or open days in your first year.
Consultancy and banking insight days and weeks often take place in the spring and summer holidays – deadlines tend to close in January, so get applying!
Applications for actuarial, insurance and pensions summer opportunities usually open in January and close in March – get your application in early; these schemes may close sooner if positions fill up ahead of the deadline.
If you plan on travelling abroad for the summer, apply now for international volunteering opportunities.
If you’ve secured an insight opportunity, make the most of it! Otherwise keep an eye out for late insight application deadlines and other opportunities.
Research the sector and employers you are interested in. This will help you focus your internship applications in the autumn and winter. It is more sensible to be organised and apply for a smaller number of opportunities than sending lots of subpar applications for opportunities that you might not even want.
