How to Get an Internship.
If you want to break into an industry, any industry, the best strategy is to be born
into a family that owns a business in that field.
The next best thing is to get an internship.
你将需要一台电脑 一部手机 和持久的毅力
You’ll need a computer, a phone and unflagging tenacity
Pick a field to intern in.
Choose something that’s exciting to you.
You don’t have to know a lot about the field, that’s what the internship is for
a genuine enthusiasm for learning more about it.
Update your resume.
Include any work experience or academic study related to the field you want to intern in.
Many internships are unpaid—be prepared to live cheaply.
If you go to a school with an internship coordinator, see if he or she can advise you on your area
把你要找实习的消息告诉所有人—朋友 家人 邻居
Tell everyone that you’re looking for an internship-friends, family, neighbor
dentist, flight attendants
You never know who knows whom.
Send an email to all the reputable companies in your field, even if they don’t officially offer internships.
People will respond to enthusiastic inquiries.
If there’s a company you really want to work for, consider contacting high-level people there directly.
If they like you, they could make something happen for you right away.
Book as many interviews as you can.
Send a thank-you note or email after all your interviews.
得到实习工作后 保持激情 努力工作
When you get the internship, be enthusiastic and work hard.
Remember, the people you’re working for could give you a real job next year.
And besides, everyone hates a lazy intern.
Did you know Microsoft founder Bill Gates once interned as a congressional page—and
supported himself by selling old campaign buttons as collectors’ items.
