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

Summer

Excerpts from an article by FastWeb

Summer is quickly approaching. For students that means fun, sun, family vacations and summer jobs. But summer can also mean scholastic, scholarship and professional opportunities.

Instead of settling for the nearest burger joint, use your ingenuity to find a job that is fun and will help you with your scholarship and college applications.
