I've just read a blog 'to Swipe or not to Swipe' and it conflicts with all the information which I have recently been given by one of the Careers Consultants at my university.Right now, I'm faced with the task of finding an internship.My internship report will count towards my final mark.Should I continue to send speculative applications to companies or should I go down the mobile app route?Right now I'm stressed but if an app would help me to quickly find an internship, then I will download one tomorrow.Has anyone had a bad or good experience with a mobile recruitment app?
Nobody is replying! Please help me with my quest to find an internship! Watch

i dont think that a mobile app will be the reason that you get an internship.. im yet to know anyone who 'resorted to a mobile app' and successfully found a placement directly as a result
and if your internship has a direct impact on your final grade, isnt it down to your university to help you and (essentially) make sure that you DO have a place to intern at, even if its a terrible place?? in reality, no-one at all can tell you to just go out and find work, it doesn't work like that... its not like in school when you had work experience and the choices were literally put infront of you to pick from, where the only other competition for that placement is with other people in your school and local schools
if getting an internship is literally a matter of necessity as you say, then PERSONALLY, i would say that you should apply to as many as you can, and be 'relatively' honest about why your applying, obviously dont say you only want to work with them because its for your course, but dont be afraid to mention that you working well for your potential employer is just as important to you as it would be to them, and that why they should hire you
