And the winner is…. Intern Selfie competition winners announced!

We’ve had so much fun at Careers Network looking at all your entries for the Intern Selfie competition and the time has come for us to announce the winners.  Our judges were looking for a inspiring intern selfie and they certainly had plenty to choose from!  From working with the flying doctors in Australia, undertaking quantum optics research in Chile and working in  Public Affairs and Communications Department in China, it was amazing to see how our students were seizing work experience opportunities in a variety of countries as well as a variety of sectors.

    Just to note- Don’t let anyone tell you that taking selfies are completely pointless. I submitted a selfie from my study China trip in Easter a few months ago on twitter for a Uni competition and completely forgot about it. Then I got an email yesterday and found I won first place ‪#‎itsthelittlethings‬
