How to boost your profile with no work experience

At Minite work experience is appreciated, but it is not always required. Our High-Flyers however, are students who go to school and do voluntary work on the side; be it charities, internships, part-time jobs, or helping out in student organizations. It’s all about what you can do on the side of activities and how involved you are in the process!

Believe it or not, you can gain relevant work experience in other ways - you don't have to work in a work environment. We at Minite would encourage everyone to do internships, because they will help to land your next freelance job. Any extra work will help as well. Some students even have their own side hustle and passion projects, which also count! Be mindful of highlighting them on your profile.

Some jobs require a certain attitude or a proactive approach, so always check if your experience and personality match that. Keep in mind that you don’t need to search for jobs that are 100% fit; sometimes it’s good to go for the ones that will net you the job. If you're still on the lookout for internships, Minite is always hiring!
