Get your Resume Ready and Apply for a Summer Internship

As a subscriber of the CareerMail, I have received several emails the past few days that are designated to encourage students to apply for an internship/job for next summer. I also agree with their suggestions.

First of all, most of us are busy with school and work during the semester. And we barely have the time to sit down, search for an internship/enrichment program/job and actually apply for it. Now we are in winter break, and it would be great if you can spare some time to do some research and then actually develop a resume and a cover letter for future use. So think about it!

Secondly, most of those opportunities have deadlines in late January and early February. But most of us don't even think about applying for one till late March. So act early!

Lastly, most internships/enrichment programs/jobs are very competitive and you want to submit an excellent application, not a crappy one that you would write in a hurry two hours before the deadline. So start early!

Here are a few of those opportunities:
1. 2008-09 Koch Associate Program in Washington, D.D
2. East Bay Outreach, Policy Analyst, and Media Internship with Greenbelt Alliance
3. QB3 Undergraduate Biotech Internship Program
4. Travel Department Internship @ The Commonwealth Club
