We have filled the internships

Well that's it. We just had the final intern confirmed. We finally managed to fill 35 of the 40 internships in 10 weeks

I have said this before but the calibre of the applicants this year has been fantastic, with a lot of the companies struggling to decide which 1 of the graduates they interviewed to take on as their intern. Also off the back of the internship programme we have also had 3 applicants who were unsuccessful in gaining an internship offered other short-term contracts with participating companies, separate from the internship programme

We also have asked 3 of our interns to blog about their experiences as an intern, so you can keep up-to-date with how it is going for David Howard @ Eurogamer; Matthew Moore @ Qube Media and Chris Dunne @ iCrossing. Just visit the Wired Sussex blog towards the end of next week.

We now have 4 quieter weeks for the programme where we will be here to support the interns as they settle into their internships, a chance for me to grab 2 weeks holiday before coming back at the middle of October where we start round 2 where we will be meeting with media companies again throughout Sussex to find the companies for the next 50 internships that go live on the 1st December for people to apply.

If you are interested in getting involved in the next round and be one of the companies that offers an internship then please register your interest at www.wiredsussex.com/internships or for further information please do not hesitate to call me on 01273 692888

This is also where you can get further information regarding the internship scheme if you are a recent graduate looking to get into the media industry, where you can apply for the internships when they go live in December and also where you can get advice and help on CV writing, covering letters and interview techniques


So finally a great thank you to all the companies involved in the scheme, our partners and everyone who has supported the programme. A huge congratulations to all the interns that have been successful in gaining an internship.

Thanks Nick
