How to Find a Summer Internship…Yes, already… Tues., 11/9

Hello Sophomores,

Some of you have been thinking about summer internships; some have not.  Now’s the time for all of you to get on board and start thinking about Summer 2011 (it’s just around the corner–ahhh!).

 The winter break is a great time to begin your internship search.  Jim Kubat, of the Career Resource Center, will be conducting a workshop, How to Find an Internship, to help you get on track.  Some internships have applications due in January or earlier!

Date/time/location: Tues., Nov. 9, 6 p.m., Usdan 108.  It’s informal, so bring your dinner and questions. 

(Note: if you cannot make this one, visit the CRC for a one/one meeting with a counselor or attend Jim’s next Internship workshop on Tues., Feb. 8, Noon, Usdan 108.)

 Jim Kubat, Associate Director/Pre-Law Advisor, Career Resource Center

Internships, Jobs, Programs and Summer Plans

If you have not already made plans for the summer, now is the time to do it.  Internships and other volunteer opportunities can have some early deadlines and summer study programs, whether at Wesleyan (summer session, Hughes program), other U.S. colleges, or abroad, have deadlines that are coming up. 

thumbnailCANL5WAYSpend some time either physically or virtually at the Career Resource Center now or  during break to see what opportunities are of interest to you.  There is an internship database on line and in print and some of these offer a stipend, so check it out.   It’s a good way to explore possible career options and gain some skills.

 Getting a start during spring break on summer employment is a smart move!

 So don’t put off summer plans until the summer; open up your options by looking now!
