You landed that big city internship, or maybe you're still waiting to hear back from the dozens of applications you sent out. Either way, you've made up your mind that interning in NYC this summer is happening.
You're probably diligently calculating costs and planning for your summer in the Big Apple -- as you should be! If you're on InternQueen.com, you understand what it means to be prepared, and I want to make sure you have the best resources at your fingertips.
One question that I'm getting more and more from students these days is, "Should I intern abroad?" From working out the logistics, to really understanding the career benefits; it can be difficult to sift through all of the information and even figure out where to start.
When it comes to stress and anxiety, everyone behaves differently, expresses themselves differently, and reacts to situations differently. When I get anxious – I call it a “nervous stomach”. I wanted this post to be very real and so before writing it, I thought seriously about how I handle my own anxiety and stress. Here are some methods that I use, that might help you distress and unwind:
We pride ourselves on being in the know about anything and everything STUDENT here at Intern Queen, and we're always looking for a great deal. A ton of companies and brands have special offers just for students including textbook discounts and tech deals; however, a lot of these discounts are difficult to find (even for us!) and often go unnoticed.
I was recently interviewed by Randi Zuckerberg. She asked me a ton of career and internship advice questions (typical). The interview went really well and I answered every question without much hesitation. The final question she asked me was, “What is your favorite app? What is the app you can’t live without?” I was silent. I hardly use apps besides Instagram and Google Maps. I really didn’t know what my favorite app was.
I get so many emails from students with questions about grad school: how to decide if they should go, where they can find more information, what they can do with a graduate degree, etc. I love it! That’s the kind of ambition that sets our #InternQueenFamily apart from other students. For some, a masters degree is necessary and for others it just gives them a leg up in their field.
I still can’t believe its 2015! Welcome to the New Year! On behalf of myself and everyone at InternQueen.com, we are so excited to join you on your career and internship journey in 2015! I just know that it’s going to be an amazing year. I already sat down over the holidays and came up with my New Year’s Resolutions and posted them here on our big-sister site, Lauren Berger Inc.
Lauren Berger created Intern Queen Inc. in 2009, after successfully completing 15 internships and college and recognizing a need for more internship resources. Her online platform, www.internqueen.com, serves as the home of the business and allows students access to apply for any internship they want free of charge. The site also features daily content on how to make the most of high school, college, and post-grad experiences.
