Top 3: Tips to Get Internships!

Hello Chicago!

Mass Effect 3, Mass Effect 3, Mass Effect 3! I’m going to off on a random tangent for a second and say I’ve been playing Mass Effect 3. The story is spectacular as well as multiplayer. (regardless of the highly criticized ending– NO SPOILERS PLEASE). To catch other readers up to speed, please watch this trailer

 Top 3: ”Tips to Get an Internship” with UIC Office of Career Services

#1.) Network, Network, Network!
It’s not the what you know, it’s who you know. “Literally place yourself in the crossroads of networks– put yourself out there and when opportunity comes, employers will know who to find

#2.) Never, EVER, wait until the deadline 
There are many other students competing for that same job and employers usually have their candidates/hires lined up by the first week; well before deadline 

#3.) Internship hunting, is A LOT like dating
If there’s a company out there you really like– go ask them out! As every pick up artist says, “the easiest way to win them, is to just call them .” Confidence is attractive to many employers and they want to scope you out before they become committed to any relationship.

That’s all I got! Stay classy Chicago,
