Bridge

I’m on a rant, it’s been a while since I’ve ranted on the blog but this topic needs to be talked about.  JobBridge (National Internship Scheme) for those who don’t know is this:

“An internship provides the opportunity to gain valuable experience in a working environment to those looking to explore or gain the relevant knowledge and skills required to enter into a particular career field.

JobBridge provides work experience placements for interns for a 6 month or 9 month period. It’s aim is to assist in breaking the cycle where jobseekers are unable to get a job without experience, either as new entrants to the labour market after education or training or as unemployed workers wishing to learn new skills.

Interns will receive an allowance of €50 per week on top of their social welfare entitlement. This will be payable for the period of the internship.”
