   Name: Ally Maize    School: Emory University    Major: Undecided    Graduation Year: 2014     1,,)      How did you find out about your current internship – a job board, college career office, friends, etc..?    I found out about my current internship through a family friend. I was very compelled to everything I learned about the company.  Right after hearing about the opportunity I followed up to show I was very interested.      2)      What was the hardest part about landing this internship?     The hardest part about landing this internship was age and lack of experience.  I just finished high school and I am soon to be a college freshman so there are many other perspective interns that have more experience then I do.  Regardless of my lack of age, I was still offered the internship because of the potential they saw in me, and my accomplishments from high school.       3)      After your interview, what [...]

Hello all! My competitive nature is partly responsible for my desire to always have something to do at work. There’s something about a heavy workload that gives me a pressure-fueled thrill that motivates me to complete all of my tasks. Although I try to keep myself busy with work, there have been times at my internships, when I didn’t feel challenged at all. Hours would go by and I would catch myself twiddling my thumbs, or organizing all of the files on my computer. I wanted something to do…I needed something to do. I figured that asking my boss for more work, or letting them know I wasn’t being challenged, might be offensive, so I kept my mouth shut. What I didn’t realize at the time was that by not saying anything, I was selling myself short of a complete internship experience. How could I learn new skills, or be [...]

Although, looking back on it I should have sent one anyway. [...]

Hey all, welcome back to Tracey’s Angle! Throughout all of my internships, I’ve always had a full load of tasks to complete on a daily basis, and with all of that regular work to do, new projects tended to creep into my pile. Simply put, sometimes things can be hectic…really hectic, and those are the times when the little voice in my head yells at me to, “PRIORITIZE!' I’m a visual learner, so I would have papers pinned up, and post-it notes hanging all over my cubicle. Eventually, my desk became excessively cluttered, and I decided it was time for me to organize my work. Instead of writing my tasks on post-it notes,I created a “To Do' list that I filled out daily. Having everything that I had to do on one sheet of paper helped me to complete my tasks in a timely and more efficient manner. I’ve also found [...]

Meet the Intern:  10 Questions With… Name: Nicole Chambati School: Radford University Major: Marketing/ Business Management Graduation Year: 2013 1,,)       How did you find out about your current internship – a job board, college career office, friends, etc..? It was by chance that I discovered this internship. I received an email from the American Marketing Association on campus about this opportunity and it was right in my field which was very fortunate. I immediately took a chance and applied because it was a great start to my future plans. 2)      What was the hardest part about landing this internship? The hardest part was actually the time crunch and lack of college experience.  I found out about the internship two days before it was due and making such a quick decision for such an important position is difficult. Once I had spoken to the Internship Coordinator and asked her many [...]

by Darren Heitner What should I major in? Is law school necessary?  What books should I read on the subject?  What classes should I take?  How do I break into the industry? Those are some of the questions I get asked as a sports agent. There is no easy answer to these questions, but there is one thing I always suggest to anyone asking me questions about my career–do an internship. That’s how I got my start in the sports industry–through an internship. Years ago, I was selected from an applicant pool of 280 candidates—one of seventeen—for an internship with Career Sports and Entertainment (CS&E), a marketing and representation agency in Atlanta, GA. Working in the Client Services division fulfilled my wish to learn everything about a being a sports agent. Each day I searched about 30 different major newspapers and extracted brief summaries of articles that either contained information [...]
