  • Why Internships Aren’t The Way To Go

    College students live in a world where taking an internship will help you find a job once you graduate. Is this accurate? I'm not saying that internships are a total waste of time, I'm saying that we live in a world now where looking for a job is harder than actually finding a job. Check out this article from TalenCulture, that talks about different routes to take other than finding an internship.

    I’m currently in Australia taking some classes and learning what life is like in the southern hemisphere.  Even more, I’m learning some important lessons and tricks on how to advance my career away from home without a job or an internship. Whether you’re also abroad, a recent graduate, or simply want to plan ahead, it’s always beneficial to know how to be productive on your own time.

    We’re facing an unemployment rate of 9.1% (underemployment is at 19.2%).  There are approximately 21 applicants per job position.  Intimidating? I certainly think so. But you can have a major advantage over your competition simply by making yourself known and getting your name out there from wherever you may be.

    Being away from home, I’ve found the best way to do so is to stay connected. Email previous employers/professors and tell them what you’re up to, what you’re planning on doing in the near future, etc. Maybe they know someone you can contact.
