Internship tips & tricks

Internships can be very beneficial to business students. Sometimes internships are seen as just a resume booster, but internships can set you apart from others. Internships provide a unique opportunity for you to get a sneak peek into the work world before you take the plunge into it. Since internships are so valuable, they are sometimes hard to get. So we decided to provide you with some tips on how to land an internship. 
Our Tips:
1. GPA
Keeping a high GPA is not an easy thing in College, but it is necessary. An average internship will set a requirement of 3.0 or 3.2 ( on a 4.0 scale). This is a B average student. Remember to keep your grades up!
2. Campus Involvement

Companies look for people who are outgoing and know how to manage their time well. If you are actively involved and keep a high GPA, you will be seen as a great choice for an internship. 

3. Resume
A good resume will always set you apart. Remember to keep it to one page and keep it interesting. Also, if you need help writing your resume go check out the Career Center located right outside Nicholson. 
4. Interview
Interviews may seem frightening at first, but they are a great way for the company to get to know you. Remember to stay relaxed and have all your facts straight. Research the company before going to your interview and also, remember to practice your interview techniques. The Career Center on campus offers mock interviews and helpful tips to make you an interview professional!
