How to make your summer a real resume builder!
I know it’s only January but it can never be too early to start planning your summer. Summer internships offer a unique opportunity for you to gain valuable work experience before you head out to into the job market for real. An internship can give you a leg-up on the competition in the job market post-graduation. Challenge yourself, reach for the stars, and most importantly go out and impress some people with your hard work!
Here are my tips for finding an internship:
1. Start with the people you know – Ask your parents, ask your friends, ask your uncle, ask anyone you know if they can help you get in contact with a potential gig.
2. Visit your school’s career center – The career center is not just for graduates! Don’t be shy, take a visit and see what you might find…
3. Check your favorite company’s websites – You never know, your dream internship could be waiting for you! Just make sure you apply early because most likely you won’t be the only one applying.
4. Know what you’re interested in – No, you’re not deciding on a life-long career, but knowing what industries interest you can help narrow your search.
