• Language Connect’s internship programme stood out from those of other companies
  • To this day I still strongly recommend this programme to anybody looking to develop their skills and start a career within the translation industry.
  • I definitely recommend this internship to anyone who wants to learn about the industry
  • The opportunity to progress has been the stand out feature for my time here so far
  • The internship is well-structured to enable you to progress gradually at your own pace
  • The project management internship at Language Connect really put everything from my studies into perspective
  • I felt immediately welcome and part of the team I was working on. This for me is the standout part of this internship

When I graduated from University I had no idea about entering this industry. After doing a bit of research of the opportunities that were out there, I came across Language Connect and got in contact to ask what opportunities they had available. Soon after, I started a project management internship on the interpreting team.

What appealed to me most about this internship was the level of responsibility given to interns from quite early on, and the way this would give me the ability to grow professionally. From the offset, I felt part of my team and I really looked forward to coming to work every day. My team and, especially, my mentor gave me an incredible amount of support, which stimulated my growth and allowed me to show my true potential. 

Towards the end of my internship I was given the opportunity to join the sales team as a Sales Support Executive. I feel lucky to have started my LC journey as an intern and had the opportunity to continue it as a permanent employee, in a role where I can use the skills I acquired throughout my time here.

I truly believe that Language Connect really values the hard work interns put in and are keen for you to progress in the company. I would recommend an internship here to anyone looking to start and progress in a career in the industry.
