Hi! I came across your blog recently and I’m so glad I found it before internship hunting season starts! So here’s a little background on me, I am an incoming third year student, and I’m about to look for my first internship.
I don’t know anything and I’m afraid to ask my friends because I’m in a competitive course. I know I procrastinated on researching and searching too much so I’m super behind my friends now. I think if I do ask for help, they’ll give me the jobs they rejected.
Now I want to enter the job market and I know it will be extra difficult for me this time but I’m determined now. I read a lot of your posts but all of them deal with resumes.
Do you have any interview tips and recommendations? What should I know before I walk into my first interview? Lastly, how can I stand out against all my friends? Thank you! More power to you TBC!
