I have been in the CEIL for about 9 weeks now, and I have nothing but positive opinions about the place and the people in it. Firstly the building is great it’s clean, neat, organised, has somewhat modern design and has a business yet relaxing atmosphere that allows you to work on centre management and study with comfort, there are also laptops the can be used (within CEIL) for whatever reasonable needs you have, for instance researching universities to apply to. Being an intern in CEIL and doing centre management allows you to gain a wide range of skills that will give you the upper hand for getting a job as it gives you first-hand experience in many aspects, you just need to incorporate them into your CV. Secondly the people running the place Lynn, Penny and Marcel and great people, there kind, energetic, understanding, funny and helpful, especially since they help tackle your weaknesses that might stop you from getting a good job, e.g. lack of communication skill, by putting you in an atmosphere where you will have to use that skill one way or another, e.g. by being a leader of a team so you would have to communicate, which might sound like it would be putting you out of your ‘comfort zone’ but it’s a quick and effective way to make progress to increases your chances of getting the job out of all the other competitors and make you stand out more to the interviewer. Last but not least, all of the other interns are great people, they are all friendly and kind when you get to know them which makes the atmosphere of the CEIL a more comfortable and joyful place, there are also a couple of board games present in the CEIL to have some competitive fun against your friends, old and new, which is great to keep you entertained during your free periods and a good way to exercise your brain.
