Welcome to the second installment of SUMMER?!, your one-stop resource for figuring out what to do with your life when you’re not in school!
Today’s topic is: Internships!
Some questions you may be having:
- What internships do I want?
- What internships can I get?
- How do I find internships?
- How do I apply for internships?
I’m going to lay it out for you step-by-step, and in no time, you’ll be an application pro!
It’s that time of year again: your friends are all starting to announce their plans for the summer. Their paying, professional, real-live adult plans. Meanwhile, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably lying in bed with one hand in a box of cereal and the other aimlessly scrolling through your Twitter feed in hopes that if you ignore the problem of summer plans, it will go away. If you starting to feel the weight of the world (i.e. your parent’s disapproving stares at your choice of major) falling on your shoulders, don’t worry: your friends here at Wesleying are here to help!
