How to gain bioinformatics experience coming from a wet lab/ biology background? : bioinformatics

I am a recent graduate of a neuroscience master’s degree looking to branch out into a more bioinformatics based future career. My main problem is that most jobs/PhDs with a bioinformatics focus will already expect experience in bioinformatics as a prerequisite, whilst I do have some experience of analyzing RNA-seq data in R from my degree, I feel like this is not enough to qualify me for a PhD position or job that is heavily bioinformatics focused.

Beyond learning things from youtube and online courses, are there any recommended ways to get hands-on experience in bioinformatics research? (i.e. are there any companies/labs that will hire someone with limited experience for an internship or temporary job position, or alternatively are there any online courses that are especially well recognized?).
