I’ve been recently at loss with the type of content I wanted to write for the blog. As a college blogger, I always find summer to be the hardest time when it comes to creating content. I feel like we’re all so done with school and just don’t want to read anything that’s related to it. So I brought back this reader survey and asked around me in the hope that I would find ideas that resonate with me.

Surprisingly, a lot of you requested more personal posts, such as life updates and behind the scenes stuff. I have to admit that my life is not all that interesting, but I do know that I don’t open up often enough to my readers, and that’s something that I’ve been trying to change. A friend of mine suggested that I share a typical day in my life and I loved the idea! I think it can also serve as a life update since, as you may or may not know, I’ve been on an internship for the last 4 months (and still 3 months to go!). Being a marketing intern is basically the only interesting thing I’ve been doing lately. So here’s what a day in the life of a marketing intern is like!

We’ve talked in the past about how important a resumé is for college students, and how to write a killer one, even if you think you have no experience (reminder: you DO have experience!!). Resumes are your first contact with your future employer and can determine whether or not you get an interview. It’s important to make sure you convey a strong first impression on paper, so the employer wants to see more and get to know you. But what do you put on your resume, especially when you’re a college student with next to no experience? These 9 resume boosters will help you make a strong first impression and get the interview!

If you follow me on Twitter or Snapchat, you know that I’ve had quite a few interviews this past week. Why? Because I’m currently looking for an internship for the winter and summer semesters!

Because of the internship search process I’ve been on with my career center, it happens that all of the interviews for the internships that I have applied for in the past few weeks happened last week, or will be happening in the upcoming week. That means that I’ve spent all most of my fall break doing interviews and that I will be (hopefully) doing more interviews this week. Yes, at the same time I’m taking my midterms. Talk about stress!

One of the ways to ace any interview is to prepare. Check out these 4 ways to help you prepare and grab your bonus worksheet at the end!
