Practice Practice Practice. It is about the best thing that you can do, and that goes for everything, from acing that exam to winning that race or getting that dream job. Say you want to be a doctor, a museum curator, or want to work in marketing or advertising. You need to have experience, not only so that you'll be a better candidate in the future, but so you can be sure that whatever path you're on is the right path that you want to take! I'm sure most of you know what internships are, but if you don't, an internship is a paid or unpaid + academic credit work that you do at a company or something of the sort where you learn how the field that you want to go into works. But, theres a whole lot of preparation that goes into getting an internship, even before you start applying to any of them. PS, if you want an internship for the fall, now is prime time to be looking! (I should be taking this advice myself). The first thing you want to do is fix up your resume. If you don't have one, make a list of everything you've ever done, leadership experiences, volunteer experiences, work experiences, skills, awards, and education.
Here are some resume tips (and there will be more in future posts)
1. Keep it to one page!
2. Keep it concise
3. Make it easy to read, easy on the eye, keep it simple
I know these are very general resume tips, but its a good place to start. Everyone's resume will be different, and trust me, it takes much more than a resume to get any internship or job!
If you already have a resume, and don't know whether its great or not, email it to me! I will gladly check it for you and send back my comments :] Make sure you put resume in the subject title.
