So what will you be doing this summer? Some of us might be working full-time while other might be interning or volunteering.On my end, I mentioned that I’m interning and I have a job so I will be very busy, but I will find time to enjoy the hot weather. Of course we would love to enjoy the sun and everything that the summertime brings, however we need to stay productive here are some tips on how to stay busy.
• Set short-term goals. For example, attend at least one professional industry networking event over the summer.
• Set long-term goals. Write them down, and prioritize them. For example, attend at least one industry professional networking event per semester, and/or get involved with an on-campus pre-professional organization.
• Do your homework. Research agencies, organization, and companies that you would like to intern with or work for. Reach out to them, requesting an information interview.
• Volunteer. Put in time at a nonprofit organization and help with public relations, marketing, social media, blog content creation, special events. All this experience counts.
