Finding an internships is a crucial component to making a smooth transition from the academic world to the real one, also known as the work force. A common term people use when finding a job or internship is “it’s not what you know, but who you know”. This is generally true for the most part, because you may find yourself applying to internships in fields that don’t exactly correlate to what you study. Whether this is true or not, the main thing to remember when pursuing an internship or career is to use all the resources that you have at your disposal. Some of these resources may include personal connections you may through family/friends, internet sites, or even your universities career service center. These resources are often times twilling to help and if you use them will make your life so much easier when it comes time to getting a position.
I can attest from personal experience, both my current internship and upcoming summer internships are in fields that aren’t necessarily related to my major, but I was able to use help from knowing the right people and working with the career team at my school.
