Find fashion internships for summer

So you want to launch a career in fashion? If you've conducted any research, you probably already know that this is a notoriously difficult industry to break into. Without work experience or industry contacts, your chances of getting a decent job in fashion are slim at best.

But with an internship, you can gain both experience and contacts, leaving you in a much better position to find permanent and paid positions when they arise.

If you're a student or if you work full time but are planning a career change, fashion internships for summer could be just what you are looking for. Fashion internships are as diverse as they are desirable. You'll find intense competition for every intern vacancy, but the hard work you put in to secure a vacancy will pay off in the long run.

Here are some top tips to help you get that internship...

  • Prepare your CV and cover letter carefully. Well crafted CVs can take up to two days per page to write (aim to keep your CV less than two pages in length). A cover letter can take the same amount of time to get right.
  • Look out for advertised intern vacancies and apply as soon as they become available.
  • Use your contracts in the fashion industry to keep an ear out for vacancies and potential vacancies.
  • Don't be afraid to approach the company to ask about the possibility of work experience. This shows initiative and enthusiasm for the industry and for the company.
