3 Top Expert Internship Tips
3. Do a follow up
Lauren Berger – www.internqueen.com – TwitterMy #1 piece of advice for students applying for internships is to follow up. I think it is very important for students to follow up about opportunities they apply for. I have a rule that internship students should follow up 3 times if possible. By following up with an employer a student shows they are genuinely interested in the internship opportunity.
2. First determine what you have to offer
Miriam Salpeter – www.keppiecareers.com – TwitterBefore you apply for an internship – or any job – take a long, hard look at what you have to offer. What skills do you have? How can you help employers solve their problems? What can you do better than most other people? Focus on these skills and identify the commonalities between what you offer and what your target employers need from you as an intern. Then, make a clear case in your application materials for why you are a perfect fit for the internship.
1. Send a "thank you" card instead of an email
Ayngelina Baconismagic – www.baconismagic.ca – TwitterAfter any internship interview courier or drop off a thank you card the next day. It shows you will go the extra mile when everyone else will only email a thank you note.
