  • Learning new skills Gaining networking connections Adding work experience to your resume Potential entry-point to a full-time position in the future
  • Tell everyone you know that you are looking for a specific type of internship; these people should include your family, your friends (at school and at home), your family's friends, your professors, past employers, alumni, etc. Just as with job-hunting, networking may be one of your best sources for internships -- especially for competitive internships
  • Read all you can, attend internal training Hint: Meetings may appear (and actually be) boring to you, but they can often offer a good chance to increase your knowledge, network, and build relationships
  • You will network your entire career, whether you’re gainfully employed or not. Get used to it, and get good at it!)
