Finding an Internship
Erin Leifker offers the following tips for finding an internship.
Start Early. Start thinking about when and where you want to do an internship. Freshman year is NOT too early.
Meet with your Career and Employment Coordinator. Discuss searching, applying and interviewing for internships; learn how to use the resources in the Career Discovery Center.
Talk with your Advisor and your Professors. They have many contacts and are a good source of information on internship and employment opportunities.
Talk to your Peers. Ask questions about their internship experiences, and the steps they took to find them.
Attend On-Campus Events. Learn about internship opportunities and network with employers at Career Service events, such as Internship Mania, Career Conference, and Nursing and Health Care Professionals Career Fair.
Create a Resume and Cover Letter. Update your resume frequently and ask others to proof it. Tailor your resume and cover letter for each internship. Schedule an appointment with a Career Services associate at 836-2282 to review your resume and cover letter.
Use your Blugold CareerLink Account. Use Blugold Career Link to post your resume, search for internships and employment opportunities, and schedule interviews.
