I know that one thing you guys wanted more of this year is internship and career-related blog post. My reader survey told me as much. And as I’ll be graduating soon (only six months left, what?!), you can for sure expect more of that kind of content to be on the blog. In the meantime, make sure to check out my “Career and internship advice” section!
However, as you may or may not know, I am currently on a second full-time internship, this time for a brand called Patience Fruit & Co. I recently told you all about what a typical day looks like for me as a marketing intern, but this week I was assigned a task that I had never done before, and I have to admit that it was super interesting!
My internship ends at the end of April, and they will be looking for a new intern to replace me for the summer. They received over 20 applications this week to fill up my position! My supervisors being super busy, they asked me to go through each application and to pick the people who I think would be most suited for the job so we can meet them for an interview. I had never been on the other side of things before, and getting this opportunity opened my eyes to the whole resume and cover letter thing. I’ve seen just about any scenario there is out there (both the good and the bad), and I thought that you guys could benefit from a few things that I’ve learned! So here are the do’s and don’ts of job searching, whether that is an internship or a post-grad position! View Post
