Guide To Finding Summer Internship Opportunities

Guide To Finding Summer Internship Opportunities

By Jason Chan, Ph.D. Fellowship and Career Advisor / Assistant Director As we near the end of fall semester and look ahead to 2021, the CCPA staff realize many of you may be thinking about summer internships. With COVID-19 throwing a wrench in many of your plans last summer and the ongoing uncertainty about what the pandemic will look like in the new year, some of you may be feeling concerned or anxious about finding and securing an internship. These feelings are completely understandable and shared by many college students across the country. The pandemic has shaken up the landscape of work and employment this year, and with priorities and resources being shifted around, employers are still figuring out what the future will look like for their organizations.  That said, many employers are continuing to offer summer internships. Some may already be recruiting but many will start recruiting after the new year and well into the spring. If you haven’t come across any opportunities in your field of interest yet, it may be that your industry has a slightly later recruiting timeline. With that in mind, the CCPA has pulled together the following guide for your summer internship search.

Shift Into Gear in the New Year (For Your Career!)

Shift Into Gear in the New Year (For Your Career!)

By Jennifer Barr It’s finally 2020 and we hope your break is going well! Many of you have been home for a few weeks now, and we hope you are catching up on sleep, eating healthy and visiting with friends and family. It’s that time of year when many students are trying to figure out practical use of their time before classes begin, and the new year always ushers in a new set of resolutions. One of the smartest ways to utilize January before classes is to spend quality time thinking about next summer, or the next (or initial!) stage of your job search. The more organized you can become over winter break, the healthier your job or internship search will be – and these benefits will be seen as you manage all of your other academics and activities. I know it may seem early, but in the world of the internship and job search, it’s never too early to get started.  Below are some of my recommendations for your Winter Break – make one or more a New Year’s resolution!   1. Create your Resume If you have not already done so, take a stab at a first draft of your resume. You can have the CCPA review it upon your return. Check our samples for layout and structure, taking special note to the tone and use of action verbs. 2. Explore your options Before you even want to look for an internship or job, get some ideas about different careers out there. Narrowing down your search will help keep things manageable and is an important part of the process. The “I can do any job,...
