As you probably know, I’ve been interning for a company in the past couple months. I’ve been living the marketing intern life since January, and it’s hard for me to believe that it’s all going to be over in a few weeks (less than 3!). Over the past few months, I’ve learned the ins and outs of being an intern, and what it takes to be the best one there is.
Now, I’m not proclaiming myself to be the best intern ever (people at work, if you are reading this, please note that this is definitely not how I see myself!), but I do have a few tips to help you get the best experience you could imagine, most of them learned through trial and error. So, how do you become the best intern ever? With these tips! View Post
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!
I think by now you know, but I’m currently on an internship until the end of April. I’ve written a few posts about it, but every time I get questions about the entire internship process. Trust me, I get it. Internships can be scary! But they’re also a great opportunity to work in your field before you graduate and gain some relevant experience! So, how do you find and land internships? I crafted this step-by-step guide to landing your dream internship to help you do just that!
As you might know, I’ve been looking for an internship recently. Of course, that means that I had to go through a lot of interviews (16 y’all!!!). Writing a killer resumé will help you get noticed, but the interview is where you make it or break it. That’s when you take the matter into your own hands and try to convince the employer that they should hire you. After going through so many interviews in such a short period of time, I’ve developed these 10 interview tips that will help you ace just about any interview!
