HOW TO GET AN Internship Legit advice from... COLIN ALLISON

PREPARE Figure out what industry you want experience in. Update your resume Make sure it is RELEVANT to the industry you are trying to work in. Make yourself an expert on the industry, read and learn as much as you can.

RESEARCH Look online for companies that are hiring interns: Use school resources, career fairs, and alumni associations.

TIP: Apply to as many as you can, don’t put all of your efforts into one dream job. Have at least five other options so you have choices.

TELL EVERYONE You never know who knows who, try to get an inside edge by getting a referral from an employee of the company that you are applying for. 63% of hiring managers will hire a referral over a non referral.

GO TO THE SOURCE Make a list of companies you would be interested in interning with. Email/call and inquire about positions Try to find the hiring managers and call them directly.

TIP: Even if a company you are interested in doesn’t have an internship program, volunteer to be their first.
