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 [...]

These days, college and high school students need every bit of help to get a leg up in this world. Think about how many of your friends or relatives are looking for work. I go on my Facebook every day and see at least two people’s status’ are about needing a job. This is why internships are so critical, because they can act as both a head start and sometimes, a source of income. And there are internships out there and available. In the last year, I’ve had not one, but two internships. It’s just a matter of knowing where to find them. Sometimes, getting an internship is about who you know. Sometimes, just getting interviews is a big deal. Companies like NBC Universal and Teen Vogue offer internships every year, but to a very limited amount of people. But you can find internships in the most unlikely of places, [...]

What not to do on Facebook

February 3, 2010

Ok, I’ll admit it. I’m addicted to my Facebook. I check it on my phone, on my computer and on other people’s computers. I can’t get away from it. All of my friends have a page, even my mother and grandparents have pages.  It’s a wonder I get any work done at all. Social media has revolutionized how we interact, make friends, share and express ourselves. It’s also changed the way employers get to know us before we even take a step inside the office. I know that college is a time for both business and fun, but students looking for jobs and internships should be careful about how they broadcast their downtime over Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites. At the interview for my first internship, I heard the three words that could make or break me: “I Googled you.” Luckily for me, they were pretty relaxed about my [...]
