Finding the Perfect Internship

13 FEB 2014

The world of internships is big one, and at times it can be daunting to those who are unfamiliar with it. Internships are great for getting your foot in the door of a great career, but to those who are fresh out of school or still studying, it can seem a bit… overwhelming. By doing as much research as possible beforehand, you can make sure that you’ll be able to find the perfect internship for you. Luckily, John Cabot University has a recent blog post that offers some great tips on how to find an internship that’s right for you.

“Are you looking for an internship that eventually leads to a job, or do you just want to pursue one for a great resume item and course credit while you study abroad in Rome? Knowing why you want to pursue an internship will help you narrow down your choices. If you’re going to be embarking on an internship for course credit, you’ll have to locate an internship and get accepted before finding a sponsor at John Cabot University and the program must be approved by the For-Credit Internship Program Director. Knowing what you want ahead of time means you’ll be excellently prepared when applying for that internship, so you should start thinking about your internship sooner rather than later!”

Booking a meeting with someone who’s high up in a field that you want to get into is a great way to not only get some advice on your prospects, but establish your identity and put yourself on the radar. Who knows, your quest for knowledge might just lead you to some great prospective jobs.
