All of these questions and more will be answered at our event next week. Join us to hear essential advice from Careers Service staff and gain an insight from our guest speakers: a current host from the Stockholm Environmental Institute, a previous micro-intern for The Nasio Trust who is now employed by the charity, and a Trinity Term 2017 micro-intern.

Although the event finishes at 13.30, you are welcome to join us afterwards for tea and coffee, and to chat with other interns and our speakers. Come prepared with all your internship questions!
