2. Intelligent Interning
One of the most effective ways to get into a specific field of work is to volunteer for a company which is similar to where you want to end up. The advantages of interning are vast, as you can gain first-hand experience with real-life companies that do the job you want to do. Gain contacts from your interning experience too and always keep a look out for any job opportunities that may arise. You’re more likely to be considered if you’ve taken time to help out previously and you’ll have the upper hand on knowledge of the company too.
3. Amazing Applications

Use true to life examples within your covering letter and make sure your resumé is up to date too. Keep it clear and concise with no more than two pages of writing. Your potential employer should be able to glance easily at your application and see the keywords they need to see.
