I’m on the hunt for an internship this summer, I’m half way through my diploma in Public Relations, therefore doing an internship would be the best thing to put into application what I’ve learned in class.
I’ve been lucky enough to get a couple of interviews, however public relations is a competitive field and since I have no experience, I haven’t been lucky with my internship search but I’m not giving up!
I recently came across a perfect article about finding the right internship. This can be applied for every field not only public relations.
More and more companies are realizing the importance of interns, however students still seem to lack the understanding of the importance of internships. Here are some questions to ask yourself when considering an internship.
• How can an internship be more valuable than what I’m learning in school?
• How many internships should I have? Is one enough?
• What factors should I consider when searching for internships?
