3 Tips For This Weekend

Alright, summer candidates - it&s on! You must take the next few weeks to get your applications together. I cannot think of a better time to start but THIS weekend! Use this weekend to do the following and I will be VERY happy with you.

  • Think about the LOCATION of where you would like to intern this summer. Do you want to go to New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, Overseas? Or maybe you want to intern where you are from or in your college town...think about it! Write down your top 2 choices and lets focus on employers in those areas.
  • Brainstorm a list of companies (off the top of your head) where you see yourself working. Let yourself THINK BIG.
  • Go on your college/university website and find your career center&s website. See if you can make an appointment online to meet with them in the next week or two. They might be busy with the beginning of the semester, so get on their calendar now. If you cannot make online appointments, write down their phone number and call to set something up first thing Monday morning.
