Better Job Prospects

Having an internship on your résumé demonstrates that you are able to handle yourself in a work environment while also showing that you have taken initiative to gain experience. They can often act as the gateway into the career of your dreams, allowing you to work your way up if you are determined enough.

You Can Experiment

A lot of young people aren’t completely sure about what type of career will be the right fit for them, even after leaving college. An internship gives you the opportunity to gain experience in a field that you might be interested in, allowing you to determine whether or not that particular career path is right for you. If it isn’t, you will still have gained valuable experience that could be used to pursue another role.

Developing Teamwork Skills

Though Caroline McCaul points out that many school and college projects place an emphasis on teamwork, it is not until you enter the workplace that you begin to understand how to actually work alongside others for the benefit of a company. An internship allows you to develop these skills, demonstrating the importance of working alongside others while also taking personal responsibility for your time.

Caroline McCaul – Tips For Learning to Play An Instrument

Caroline McCaul is passionate about music and has attended the Strum Music School to learn how to play the guitar, in addition to working on her vocals. She aims to become the CEO of a company that makes use of music in an innovative fashion at some point in the near future, so she is always keen to help the next generation of musicians get started. Here are some tips that should help those who are learning how to play a new instrument.

Practice Scales

While they may be a little tedious to people who just want to jump right in and play their favorite songs, playing scales regularly will allow you to develop the muscle memory needed in order to master your instrument. They are also important as they relate to musical theory, so spend time understanding and playing them.

Practice Every Day

The earliest days of learning a musical instrument are often the most difficult as you will often see very little progress in the first few weeks. This leads many people to quit before they have really gotten started. Remember that being good at anything requires practice so keep plugging away and you will start to see improvement.

Enjoy Yourself

While Caroline McCaul notes that the technical aspects of music are important, you also need to enjoy what you’re playing once in a while. Seek out pieces of music that match your skill level and that you enjoy so that you don’t focus solely on technical exercises.
