When I first started Intern Queen and spoke in front of student audiences the questions were always the same, “How do I get more involved?” Today, things have shifted, when I speak in front of a college audience, the question I get is, “I’m too involved. How can I cut back?” We live in an era where it’s cool to be busy, to have a lot of things on your plate, and to multi-task constantly. However, it’s also our job to scale back, to make sure we don’t overdo it, and to make sure we still have time for ourselves.
With the New Year upon us, there is more and more talk about resolutions and personal goals. While many people say, “this year will be my year,” these simple tips will help make that possible for each and every one of you!
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.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! But with exams, final projects, presentations, internship-wrap ups, and more -- it’s the most stressful time, too. We’re all guilty of experiencing what I call “monkey mode”: those moments when your mind is elsewhere and you’re just staring at your laptop screen or books. Read my tips on how to recover and get the job done HERE.
The time for papers, exams and presentations is here. Cramming, all nighters and an endless supply of coffee (with extra sugar, please!) become a ritual for some as the last few weeks of school approach us.
As I write this blog post, I’m on an airplane staring out the window of grey clouds and blue skies and thinking about how fast this year has gone. I can’t believe we’ll be celebrating the holidays in just a few short weeks and that Thanksgiving is already here!
Every day, aspiring young professionals (like you!) come to Intern Queen Inc. to read important career advice, to see what lessons our Campus Ambassadors have to share, and to discover the coolest internship opportunities.
But have you ever wondered what it’s like to intern for Intern Queen. Inc, itself?
Finding the balance between academic excellence while maintaining your social life can be overwhelming for the average person. Adding a job, internship or athletics to all of that is impossible for some. Then there is you... You want to do it all.
While this is admirable, it is also difficult to do everything well. Often, taking on too much can leave one or more areas suffering.
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.
