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 [...]

Finding the perfect internship When I was accepted as a journalism major at Cal State Northridge, I learned that  I would have to complete an internship in order to graduate. The little I knew about internships didn’t make me think it was going to be a fun experience. I figured I would probably be stuck getting coffee and answering phones at some newspaper or magazine. Not my idea of a positive resume builder. So I was pleasantly surprised when I landed the perfect internship, perfectly suited to my interests and career goals. Would it have been perfect for everyone? Probably not, but this internship was a match made just for me. I was excited to get an internship offer at a website. I knew they needed me to do research, so I thought I would just be filling in excel sheets with the info I found, working from home, and [...]

Hello internship seekers! As a student in this economy, the real world of having a career may seem like a distant or possibly unattainable future. That is why getting a leg up is more important than ever. While getting good grades is going to get you a degree, an internship will help you get a job after college. Because of this, students all over the world participate in internships every year, trying to gain valuable work experience so that they can hit the ground running in their future career. My name is Emily, and I am one of those interns. To be more specific, I am an intern for Internships.com (ironic, I know). This means not only am I in your shoes, but I’m also on the front lines of everything internship related. I grew up in a small town in Central California, that most people have never heard of, [...]

With 2010 slipping away from me, I’m starting to think about what 2011 will be like. This post is an attempt to figure out what I expect out of myself in 2011, and to set my professional goals/New Year’s resolutions for the 2011 year. First a recap… In 2010, I finished off my Sophomore year in college with above a 3.0 grade point average, was elected Black Student Union Vice-President on my campus, and I got an internship for the summer, and started in May. The internship went so well that the company opted to keep me for the Fall semester as well! Currently, I am still working with the company, internships.com, and I am loving it! Although this year was great, and full of amazing opportunities and accomplishments, I am pushing for 2011 to be even better! Here are my New Year’s professional resolutions for the year 2011… Strengthen [...]
