In previous shows about the job market and recent college graduates, we get a number of calls and comments from graduates who say their internships were the key to getting their full-time jobs and once they finished school.
However, we have also heard that sometimes internships, especially the first one, can be difficult to obtain because an organization wants an applicant to have previous experience. How does one find an internship and make it a successful experience? How does an organization run a successful program?
Allison Cheston, career connector for Executive and Young Adults, will join The Daily Circuit Wednesday to discuss the search for internships. Robert Shindell, director of content and resource development for Intern Bridge, will also join the discussion.
If you're looking for an internship: be selective, do your homework and treat the process like you would a job interview.
