The right job after graduation is the holy grail of college education. You cram all year long to get those grades, so that once you graduate, you can get that dream job.

It’s no secret that in order to get there, you’ll need to nail that internship. Having an internship can make a huge difference and affects the course of your career, from jobs opportunities to salaries.

The great news is that you have the power to impact your career success by focusing on getting that internship.

So now that we established how important it is to get an internship and you’re all pumped to find one …you may be wondering if it is too late in the year for that.

We’re glad to say the answer is No! At most companies, summer internships start at around May but surprisingly a similar number of internships start in June and July combined. In fact, the season for internships which includes the summer and fall internships, doesn't subside until October. So, all hope is definitely not lost!
