Hey all! Just before every school year starts, thousands of college students are rushing to figure out whether they want an internship or not during the fall, and then, how they’re going to go about landing that internship.  One of the most common mistakes that I’ve noticed students make is not reaching out to their college career centers.  Don’t be too afraid to ask for help- career centers can not only guide you in finding the perfect internship, but they can also help you to prepare for submitting your application and going through the interview process. Before I knew that the career center at my school existed, I scrambled around campus getting my friends and professors to proofread my resumes, and I practiced interviewing with an employer in front of the mirror.  After discovering the office and utilizing some of its services, I discovered that it was one of the [...]

When internships.com reached out via Twitter asking about summer internship experiences, we got a reply from Francesca Amiker saying that it was the best summer of her life. We were eager to hear more and Francesca was more than willing to share her experience as an intern with the internships.com community. Francesca is a rising junior at Vanderbilt University. As a  double major in Communications and Film Studies with a minor in Corporate Strategy, she will have completed 5 internships at the end of this summer. If you have any questions for Francesca, ask in the comments section. If you would like to contribute as a guest blogger, send us an email. ——————————— Time Warner – As I conclude my second to last week of my 8 week program with Time Warner Cable in San Diego/LA I can’t help but to reminisce on all that I have learned and all of [...]

Week 3! It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it. As always, feel free to add any sweet tweets to the comments section.

Be honest.' Intern 2: “I don’t know, but it makes you look creepier.' @alikroeger: My intern isn’t into Shark Week -His words: I would watch a Cat Week, something that is cute. @jaywalk1: Just read an internship app w/ another company mentioned throughout. On a scale from 1 to #FAIL …. @sunshinekara: Already got yelled at today by my internship supervisor. Wednesday = 1, Kara = 0. I will conquer! @DaveHillintern: One of the things that I will take away from this internship is a drinking problem. @OHnewsroom: [...]

Hey all! The balancing act of attending classes, doing homework, working, and participating at club meetings is one that will never be easy. Although the summer is the most popular season for doing an internship, I’ve actually found that a few of my most rewarding internship opportunities happened during the school year. The first internship I did during a school year was in my second semester freshman year. Was it difficult to find the position? Relatively. Was I crazy for interning my freshman year? Maybe. Was it worth the time and effort? Most definitely. Upon completion of that internship, I had more field experience than a majority of my peers. When I was considering taking that first internship, time management was my main worry.  I decided, however, that I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity, so throughout that semester I stayed as organized as possible by keeping a [...]

      Hey all,  Freshman year is supposed to be full of discovery, excitement, and exposure. Meeting new people, soaking in all of the lectures that you can, and living life without as much parental control–so exciting! But what about job experience? Sure, you may take on a part-time campus job, but think of how much more productive you could be if you spent the same amount of hours you spend at that part-time job doing an internship. How great would it look to have an internship already on your resume?  My current internship, here at internships.com, is my third. I had my first internship during my freshman year. Now I know you’re probably thinking…  “Why would I want an internship so early on in college?'  “Isn’t an internship a lot of work and responsibility to handle as a freshman?'  “Most employers want someone who is really experienced…I am definitely [...]

  Hey all,  Summer is at it’s peak, and whether you’re just getting settled into your summer internship, or you’re spending your days at the beach and your nights hanging out with friends, it’s about time to start your search for a fall internship. Seriously, I know you don’t even want to think about fall semester, but don’t let your summer fun sidetrack your focus.  Take me for example. Here I am, sitting at my desk at my summer internship, and worrying about what I am going to do during the fall. Aside from the clubs I’m in, and attending my classes, what will I do in order to build my resume? A basic campus job is always an option, but an internship sounds far more appealing.  Below are a few things I’ll do when I start my search for my next internship:   1.      Ask around. Asking my family,friends,classmates, and [...]
