Every Friday, we’ll have a new Featured Student who will share some fun facts about themselves,  be featured on the Employer home page, and get a fun gift from us. Just for being so awesome. Matt is a print media and public relations major at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. Three facts about me: I’ve always dreamed about being a sportswriter for a newspaper, but now I’m more interested in advertising and PR, or, as my friend calls it, “the dark side.” Writing, whether it be for papers, a newspaper article, or anything else, has always come naturally to me. I’m thinking about writing an autobiography.

OK, since I was young I’ve always been interested in fashion. I used to design random things in my spare time, and would use the Internet to search different styles and designs I liked. I also started dancing a couple of years ago, which I fell in love with — but I never really shared my opinions on these things with anyone. So I started my blog, ‘Dream Believe Achieve,’ a while back. It was really more of a hobby to post things I found interesting: fashion, music, dance, entertainment etc. I got quite a lot of positive feedback, and through the blog, I started hearing about other talented young individuals. I’m 16, but I started my blog when I was 15. Some of the people I got to know more through blogging were Adeen(Remy & Jovany), Great $cott and Justin Antonius, to name a few. All of these people [...]

We certainly understand where you’re coming from, but making users complete a profile is actually a critical reason that Internships.com is able to bring you so many employers, internships and extra features that other sites just don’t have. Here are a few reasons why: 1. The profile is what lets employers search for you. The first step to creating a great internship marketplace is attracting the best employers. Without them, you’d have nothing to apply to! We decided that we could draw in tons of employers if we created a place where they could — if they chose — search for the most qualified candidates themselves. To do that, we needed everybody’s resumes to be in a standard format. When you create an Internships.com profile, you’re letting employers shine a spotlight on your talents and experience. 2. The profile makes your goals and experiences more clear to employers. Statistics say [...]

Matt Lassen was lucky — and evidently talented — enough to do two summer internships at Mad Magazine in New York City. This week, he talks about his first internship in the editorial department, meeting famous illustrators and working directly with the editor-in-chief. Mad Magazine can be an intimidating place to get an internship. Not only has it set the standard for satire and humor, but it’s a continued influence on comics and popular humor outlets today like The Onion and College Humor. The most intimidating places are usually the ones that will change your life for the better. As an editorial intern, I would hop the train bound for their midtown Manhattan office, located across the street from The Ed Sullivan Theater. At 10 a.m., I got off the elevator at Mad’s own floor in my casual T-shirt and jeans and walked down a hallway littered with iconic Mad [...]

For our latest employer perspective, we talked to Dani Bernstein — PolitiCorps’ associate director of the Oregon Bus Project — about starting a career in politics at the organizing level. 1. How did you get started in the industry? How can someone who is interested in your work get started? The PolitiCorps program gave me my start in electoral organizing. I participated in the program the summer after I graduated college, and from there was able to dive right into campaigns with the critical skills and experiences that I needed to succeed. People come to organizing work with a range of backgrounds and experiences — some have been politics junkies their whole lives; others have only just discovered that politics might be the way they want to make an impact. You just need to start off with the right attitude: a willingness to work long hours and an unwavering desire [...]

Each Wednesday, we’ll featuring an article from our friends at college blog The Campus Socialite. This week, they break down all the social media platforms that let college students share personal and embarrassing details with the entire world. Socialites, welcome to the world of social media: Everyone needs to know what you’re doing or thinking at any given time of day…and no one is more obsessed with sharing their thoughts and actions than college students. The question is: Do we endlessly share to spread our own knowledge to others, or do we just want to be celebrities in our own personal worlds? It’s a matter that’s still in debate, and might be forever. But the fact remains that we derive some form of pleasure from letting all of our friends and acquaintances know about every detail of our lives, and every day we find new ways to do just that.
