Tips for health economics master graduates:
How to find your internship
As a health economics master graduate, finding the right internship can be a competitive and challenging task due to the limited number of available opportunities. However, securing the right internship is a crucial step in jumpstarting your career. An internship provides an opportunity to gain practical experience, develop your skills, and build your professional network. To maximize your chances of success, here are some tips for finding the right internship as a health economics master graduate:
1. Research the companies
Before applying for an internship, it is important to research the companies you are interested in thoroughly. Look for information about the company’s culture, mission, and values, and evaluate how they align with your career goals. In a competitive environment, demonstrating knowledge of the company and the work they do can set you apart from other candidates.
2. Leverage your network
Networking is an essential part of finding an internship, particularly in a limited market. Reach out to your professors, classmates, alumni, and other professionals in the industry to ask for referrals or recommendations. Attend industry conferences, and other networking events to connect with potential employers. You can also join professional organizations or groups related to health economics to expand your network.
3. Customize your CV and cover letter
When applying for internships, make sure your application materials stand out. Customize your resume and cover letter for each application to showcase your relevant experience, skills, and accomplishments. If you are struggling to write a professional-looking CV or cover letter, consider hiring a professional CV writer. They can help you create an application package that highlights your strengths and makes you stand out from the competition. Make sure your documents are error-free and use language that reflects your knowledge of the company and industry.
4. Apply strategically
In a competitive job market, applying strategically is key. While applying for every available internship may seem like a good approach, it’s often more effective to apply for a select few opportunities that align with your skills and career goals. Sign up for the Gesundheitsökonomie Jobs Newsletter and get the latest health economics jobs and internships by email. Use job boards, like EuropeanHealthEconomics.com, and be persistent in your search.

If you secure an interview, it’s important to be well prepared. Research the company and the specific role you are applying for, and prepare thoughtful questions that demonstrate your interest and knowledge of the industry. Practice your interview skills with a friend or mentor and dress professionally. Be confident, articulate, and showcase your skills and experience.
