Getting your degree is only half the battle when it comes to building up an impressive resume and preparing yourself for a career. Bringing valuable work experience to the table at a job interview will give you a competitive edge over other candidates and the confidence to perform better in your new position. So just how do you land that first internship?
Internships are extremely valuable when it comes to taking the first steps toward your career goals. They offer experiences that college classrooms can’t, such as industry insight, mentorships and hands-on learning. By gaining this type of knowledge, you’ll not only be building your resume, but also making yourself a more marketable and valued asset to any future employer.
The last four months of my internship at Fletcher has helped shape me into the career woman I’ve been inspired to be. It wasn’t a “Grab six non-fat lattes before you come into work,” internship. It was a get-it-done and do-it-right sort of gig. There’s little time for errors in the world of PR, and that’s something I quickly had to realize.
