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!
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 things that helped me get through this stressful week is to prepare. How do you prepare for an interview? Check out these 4 ways to help you prepare for any interview and don’t forget to grab your bonus worksheet at the end! View Post
As I have mentioned in my fall semester goals, I am currently on the hunt for an internship for the winter and summer. As I am in a cooperative program at my university, it is required that I accomplish three four-month internships before I graduate. My first (and second) internship will be during the winter semester, starting at the beginning of January. So, naturally, I have to start looking and preparing for the interviewing process. The first step to landing an awesome internship is to write a killer resumé! I am absolutely no expert here, but I went to a workshop at my career center and also met a counselor who helped me perfect my resumé, even if I have no experience in my domain.
