...COLES COLLEGE INTERNSHIP BLOGGER


Welcome to Your Turn To Intern
By Meghan Stoneburner Wha t a re the be st a sp ects of your inte rnship ? My internship is more amazing than I ever thought it would be. I have the luxury of soaking up tons of amazing information that isn't taught in college. There have been 2 events so far that I have attended with my internship boss that have brought me around Marketing professionals and SEO experts. I absolutely love networking with people that I would love to work with and learn from. There have even been a handful of people that have insisted on getting my business card so they can talk to me about potential job offers. I'm very lucky to be in such an amazing position.

Wha t skill s are y ou dev el op ing ? I learn something new every week and it's usually surrounding SEO, social media, blogging, and event marketing. I am currently working on my own blog with the encouragement of my boss and she has helped me develop an SEO plan for my blog. I truly believe this internship is going to lead me to the career of my dreams. Ne tw or king
Its all about who you know, and it goes beyond family and friends. Get to know your professors. Inform them of your interest so they will mention your name if something comes up their way. Thats what happened to me and I am now an SEO intern all thanks to a referral by Marketing professor.

JOE VIDAL, a web developer intern for HEWLETT PACKARDS Solution Center in Alpharetta happened to know the right people who thought of him when the internship position opened up. He gives credit to his networking skill and encourages others to get out there and meet people. There are even Meetup.com groups fitting just about everyones interest, professional and otherwise, Fill your pockets with business cards and get your name in peoples minds.
Coles College Career Services has resources that students may not even know exist. EMILY DONADEO, a Marketing Intern for THREE DAY MEDIA, posted her resume on KSUs OWLLINK and had several interviews from that site. She eventually earned her current internship through a mass email from Kathy Hallmark after her employer posted the position on the Coles College Internship & Co-Op Facebook page. Use your college resources and if you dont know what those might be, visit the Coles College Career Services Lab and remember to read the COLES CHRONICLE each week to learn all about the possible ways to get your ********************************************************************************************* name and resume into the right hands. Getting an internship is very much like getting a job. If you follow these tips, you will have your resume in the hands of the right people. Dont just hope an internship will land in your lap. Go out and get one! Good Luck! Meg
