Summer Interships / Shadowing Opportunities

Summer


If you are one of the many students who were not able to find a summer job this year… here is an idea.  Look for a company that will allow you to intern or shadow someone free of charge.  If you can find a position that you are interested in pursuing in college, that is even better.  This will not only build your resume but it will allow you to learn “first hand” about a particular profession.  Many employers end up hiring interns to be a part of their team, they have already been able to “test” your abilities.

If you do intern, shadow or work this summer remember these important tips:

1) Don’t text while on the job

2) Ask for work if you find yourself sitting around, this shows initiative

3) Stay away from office gossip
