How Josh got CV-boosting professional experience in just 2 weeks

Posted on Career planning, Jobs, internships and work experience, Scotland

Josh Brown describes the skills he developed during his two-week internship with Insight for Good:

“A lot of the skills that we use are researching skills, which are something that you learn doing social sciences, […] and then [Insight for Good] brought slightly more market research-oriented ideas like how you distil that research into insights

It can seem like a huge task to move into a new career, but it can start with small steps. Two weeks might be enough to start making contacts, gain skills and experience. Josh added, “It definitely broadened what I was thinking about […] as a possible career.”
