When college is over, I am curious how you are able to figure out how to get into the system of people looking for an internship. Is it a career fair? Or do you have to go place to place on your own looking for an internship? How do you get people to offer you an interview? #internships #interviews #recruiting

If you have connections that's great, otherwise APPLY, APPLY, APPLY!


The more you send your resume out, the more likely you are to get a call for an interview. Almost all companies post their listings online but job fairs are also a great opportunity to meet people.


I would suggest interning while you are in college, that way upon graduation you can start working or even get hired by the company you intern with.

Connections are great, but you can also attend career/job fairs at your university to learn more about companies and which ones are looking to hire interns for the summer/semester. You can also check out your career center on campus or online database to see if there are any internship posted. Hopefully your college/university has career advisors that can also be a resource to you. Many of the bigger named companies have internship programs as well, so go check out their website and apply directly on there. LinkedIn is another great resource, there are alumni boards you can reach out to and lots of companies posting for jobs there as well.


Best of luck on your search!

Lucy,


Having a really strong LinkedIn Profile can be very helpful in making yourself visible in the market. There is a huge network of recruiters actively searching for new grads on LinkedIn, and this is where you have the best chance to be seen. LinkedIn does a great job at helping you create a page, and I would add one big suggestion. Be professional on LN, but also use it to demonstrate your personality. Add hobbies/ interests, write a strong summary about yourself that shows what you are passionate about. Add personal projects, or anything you think is relevant.

When I was right out of high school and I started college, one of the things that I believe helped me was that I was open to opportunities . For example, although I started in the mail room at the time, the job functions within the organization was software related and that is exactly what I wanted to be in.


I read another post that continuing to apply is also a plus and I agree.
