Nuala: I think my advice would be to ask questions. That goes from the moment when you are being interviewed for internships and as well as when you’re doing the actual internship. I would encourage asking questions, and many of them, even if they seem like silly questions.
Charles: My advice would be not to be afraid to speak up and voice your opinion on what work you like to do. Only that way you will be challenged and learn what actually is of long term benefit.
Jake: If you get a question during your internship and are unsure how to answer, it’s better to say you don’t know rather than pretend to know the answer. No one expects you to know everything when you first begin your internship because in fact this is why you’re here to learn and build on your existing knowledge.
It’s been a pleasure having Nuala, Jake and Charles in our team. We wish them all the best in their future endeavours and certainly look forward to seeing them again next year.
