Who doesn’t love a good inspirational quote every so-often? I worked with my team to go through some of my favorite quotes of all time – many of them are from my “Inspirational Quotes” Pinterest board. I hope some of these quotes inspire you as they continue to inspire me every day!
Here’s the deal. An employer can put you at the top of their list for an internship or job. They might think the world of you. If they see an image of you where you are dressed inappropriately because you’re in a swimsuit or wearing a super short skirt (about to go out) they can easily change their mind.

Make sure you don’t blow it by posting inappropriate material during spring break.

We have three spring interns this year, Lauren, Rachel, and Victoria. Lauren goes to UCF and Rachel/Victoria go to Rutgers. The three of them are a power team of interns. Here are a few things they did to impress us this week:
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.
