Can I do interships not related to my field?


#1

Hi,

I am an computer science graduate . Can I do an intership in a field not related to computer science? Like theatre or content writing etc?

Of course…but you need to find someone to accept you. In addition, you need to have a good explanation for why you’re going to do something completely unrelated. I could envisage a scenario where someone doing computer science did theatre to improve their self confidence and interpersonal skills for example.

Yes but it may look odd to any potential employer as you progress into your final job search. It will raise questions around your career focus. Be aware of that before you proceed. Providing the employer can see an obvious link between your choice and the job you are ultimately applying for, they will be fine. Think carefully in preparation …
