How to Get An Internship

Are you a college student looking for an internship? Are you frustrated because you can’t get an interview? If you don’t have an internship on your resumé, you won’t be as competitive in your future job search. Employers want real work experience, even for entry level positions.

Find the internship you need
to launch your career

We know how to find internships for college students. More importantly, we identify opportunities that are relevant to your career path that:

  • Develop skills that are not taught in the classroom
  • Provide career-specific technical training
  • Build your professional network
  • May result in a full-time job offer

Our process works

Applicant tracking systems filter out 75% of all applications, recruiters only spend 6-7 seconds reading a resumé when they see it, and hundreds of applicants are vying for coveted internships. That’s how competitive the job market is.

  • We reconstruct your resumé so it is organized, clear, and can be read easily
  • Your career strategist creates a professional LinkedIn profile to maximize your online visibility
  • We identify potential connections in your network who can help advance you through the internship search process
  • Your coach crafts cover letters that align your skills with the requirements for each job application
  • Our Interview Skills Specialist trains you to handle today’s most common questions
  • Our team thoroughly prepares you for each interview and debriefs with you after
  • We spend countless hours doing research every step of your journey

We meet with you weekly, and sometimes more often, to keep you moving forward, so you stay on top of application deadlines, post-interview thank you notes, reviewing your inbound and outbound communication, building your network, and preparing for the next interview – always keeping the focus on securing the internship that will set you up for future success.
