How to Update Your Resume

Every now and then you should update your resume so that when the time comes, you’re always ready to apply for any position that comes your way.  Instead of waiting for when it is time to apply make sure to take some time and update it to create the best possible resume.

Ask for help

It’s always a good idea to get help. Especially with something as important and tricky as writing a resume, getting all the possible feedback can make a huge difference.  Maybe make an appointment with someone in your campus career center. They can help you make sure you’re resume is typo and error free. They could also let you know of any other positions you might be interested in.

Self-Care for the end of the Semester

Right now, life is basically the prime example of “too much to do and not enough time to do it.” Classes are getting ready for finals, projects are due, and life has to fit somewhere in there. Not to make this all about me, but I’m working a job on-campus, interning downtown, taking 18 credit hours, and planning a whole university formal, so things are pretty tough right now. I know I can’t be the only one dealing with a lot, so I came up with a list of things to do that help me relax or calm down when I’m stressed. I should mention that these are things most people don’t think of or at least talk about so you can get some new self-care tips!

Spend the whole day doing nothing

Financial Responsibility Advice

I started working basically as soon as I turned 15. While it was at a tiny pizza shop in my hometown, it was still exciting to know that after two weeks I would have my very own paycheck that was my hard-earned money. As I got older and got better jobs, I started getting paid more and then it hit me: I wasn’t really paying attention to how much I was spending or where my money was going. Here is where your favorite intern (me) comes in with a solution to the problem. I created a list of helpful tips to think about and remember as you start navigating the adult world when it comes to financial responsibility.

How to Handle Being Late to an Interview

Not everything always goes as planned. When it comes to interviews everyone always puts the emphasis on how you need to be on time and the importance of showing up in the right outfit with the right attitude. Unfortunately, life happens. Whether it’s that you wake up sick or your car doesn’t start, things come up that could hinder getting to or even showing up to your interview. Like I have mentioned before, these blogs are here to help interns everywhere succeed throughout their professional career. While I would always want everything to go perfectly, that is just not how it happens.

Relax

The first thing you need to remember is that you aren’t the first person to have to miss an interview or show up late. Just relax and know that most of the time the people you are interviewing with will be flexible as long as you are …

Beyond the IMPACT: Salvador Espinoza

In today’s blog post, Indiana INTERNnet intern Kayla Walke interviews Salvador Espinoza. Salvador was the winner of the 2016 High School Intern of the Year IMPACT Award, and has been nominated for College Intern of the Year multiple times.

Indiana INTERNnet: What are some of the best lessons you learned while interning?

Salvador Espinoza: I think the best lesson I ever learned was to never underestimate the power of an internship. I was 16 years old when I got into my first internship and it was for a manufacturing company. That already doesn’t sound appealing to most teens trying to make a quick buck over the summer, but it sounded like a great opportunity and it ended up being one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I was an intern for the same company for 6 years and learned so many things. I learned about marketing, human resources, what …
