by Alicia Landsberg I guess you can say I’m a veteran intern. I’m a senior in college, scheduled to graduate in May, and this semester I’m doing two internships. Both internships are “telecommuting,' or what’s also called “virtual.'  The experience has unique advantages and disadvantages compared to traditional internships. The most obvious pro to a virtual internship is the flexibility.  As a college student I’m not exactly wired to handle the nine-to-five traditional workday schedule, but by working from wherever my laptop is, I’m free to do my internship work at my convenience; in between classes, after homework and studying, and on the occasional weekend night when I’ve opted to stay in.  I am currently working as an Editorial Intern for two online travel guides–Rollinglobe Media LLC  and Destination Guides. The work consists primarily of writing travel articles, reviews and maintaining a blog. Writing, like most creative work, is hard [...]

by Paul Sevcik Paul is a contributor to the Intern Matters blog, but his recent experience transitioning from intern to full-time employee is a great story for interns and future interns who are investigating their path to a career. Read his story below and start thinking about how you can make the move from intern to employee. I was in the last semester of my MBA program and all indicators were bad.  The job market was down and paid positions were scarce as recently laid-off seasoned professionals joined the merry-go-round looking for work. At a networking event, I learned about an unadvertised internship at a company located in the same building where I took to my graduate courses. I chatted up the CEO of the company and was invited to apply for the internship. This particular company had a unique way for potential interns to start the application process.  Submit [...]

by Miguel Corona Any chance you’re familiar with the plot of the movie “Back to the Future,’ where Marty McFly is taken back to the 1950’s in a nuclear-powered DeLorean built by his scientist friend Doc Brown? I’m sure this movie is before your time, but I bet most of you have seen it. Remember that in order to get back to the future, Marty has to fix the damage he causes by interfering inadvertently with his teenage parents. As the movie plot suggests, the future is not predictable; however, future outcomes can be influenced by today’s choices. Wouldn’t it be great to go back and avoid mistakes before they happen? As a college student, there is an obvious and important focus on academics, but a total focus on academics can mean minimal guidance regarding the best ways to prepare yourself for the future work environment. This lack of preparation [...]
