I Make a Difference, Do You?

November 2, 2010

So your eyes are burning from a grueling internship search that has your task bar permanently emblazoned into your retinas. Blink a little, stretch your legs, and get up. No, not now. After you’re done reading this. The point is you gotta get out more.

Building your web presence and applying to jobs and internships is clearly important, but a lot of the best opportunities to build your career come through networking. This week, The Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour is bringing some of the nation’s most influential young businesspeople to George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. for a free conference to inspire students to build their enterprise visions into reality. Speakers include web startup CEOs, nonprofit executives and small business owners from a wide variety of backgrounds.

EET is partnering with one of’s closest nonprofit affiliates, iMADdu (I Make a Difference, Do You?), to put on the event, which will take place at the school’s Dewberry Hall this Thursday,Nov. 4 from 1-5 p.m. It’s a great opportunity to speak with some of America’s brightest innovators and network with people who can help jumpstart your own big ideas — and if you live in the Washington,D.C. area, you won’t want to miss it.

iMADdu and both believe that experiential, on-the-job education is the best way to start achieving great things. Even if you haven’t given serious thought to starting your own business, this is an excellent chance to learn about iMADdu’s internship placement programs from the people who arrange them. Oh yeah … and there’s food and music involved.

Here’s a list of iMADdu’s current openings for its Student Apprenticeship Program, and you can see a full schedule of events for Thursday’s Extreme Entrepreneurship event here.
