Internship Advice

With summer just around the corner, it's internship season for many college students, and if you're a communications major, any chance to hone your skills in a real world setting is very important.

Having said that, here are a few things to remember about internships.

1. Be smart where to do your internship. Ask your professor (s) if the internship is for college credit. Some institutions may offer internships as electives.

2. Treat an internship like you would a regular job. Even though most internships are unpaid,
you still have to come to work on time, and leave when the regular employees, unless there are other arrangements made with the employer.

3. Just because you have an internship doesn't guarantee you a job at the company once you graduate. But it does give you something to put on your resume once it comes time to
start looking for work.

There are many more things to say about internships, only there's not enough time, at least for this post. In the meantime, Happy Interning.
