Preparing your CV
A skills-based CV is the usual requirement and the majority of internship positions require the student to attend an interview. More information on creating a CV can be found here. Students should approach the interviewing process for UCC WORKS internship positions the same as if they were applying for a paid position within an organisation.
If you would like more help in updating your CV you can book an appointment with a UCC Careers Advisor.
