Online Internship Fair: A New Way to Meet Employers

Some internship fairs can get too hot, too awkward and just all-around exhausting. That is why Indiana INTERNnet is so excited to host another online internship fair! This experience serves as a great way for students to network and learn about so many amazing opportunities out there. Now is a great time to start looking at positions for spring, summer or fall. If you were on the edge about signing up, I have some reasons as to why you should join us for the fair.

How to get started

Make an IndianaINTERN.net account and complete your profile on CareerEco. This profile allows you to upload your resume, add your education background and indicate when you are looking to intern. Setting up your profile beforehand can allow for employers to look at your resume before the fair even begins.

How it works

The fair will take place from 10 a.m. – …

What To Do If Your Internship Isn’t The Best

Recently, Allison wrote a blog post about what to do if an intern isn’t doing their best. I think we should also talk about what to do if your internship experience isn’t the best. Unfortunately, even though every internship posted on our site must be approved by a staff member, some internships are not what you were hoping they would be.

Remember it’s temporary

Internships are great because they are only temporary, which allows you to see what work environments you do or don’t like. Some days will be harder than others, but remember that you don’t have to be there forever. Take every opportunity you can to learn and network as much as you can. Just because you don’t like the place you are at doesn’t mean the experience is a waste of time.

Don’t burn any bridges

You might think that because you’re “just an intern” you can …

What I’ve Learned Outside the Classroom

If you’ve been keeping up with my blog posts throughout the summer (and now into the fall) you’ll see that I often mention how so much learning happens outside of the classroom. Internships, for example, allow students to be a part of the workforce and get hands-on experience before they graduate. While I understand the important roles school and education play in our lives, it should be noted that learning doesn’t just happen in the classroom.

You’re dressed, but is it to impress?

While in college you’re basically able to show up in whatever you want. Interning is different. You don’t get to have comfy days with t-shirts and sweatshirts. While you’re at work, you must follow the dress code every day. This also applies for interviews and beyond. Make sure that everyone who sees you can tell that you’re there for a reason.

The handshake

It wasn’t until …

Staying on as a Fall Intern

I’m so excited to say that I will be staying on the Indiana INTERNnet team through the fall! With the summer coming to an end, I was more and more sad with each passing day that I would have to leave this amazing team that I have been able to work with. When I was asked to stay on through the fall, I was ecstatic and so proud of myself.

I’m so thankful for this opportunity to continue to grow and learn with Indiana INTERNnet. I know that this summer I’ve learned so much, but there’s still so much for me to learn. I love growing and learning in this environment and can’t wait to see what the fall will hold.

To everyone that read my posts or watched my video’s for Indiana INTERNnet’s YouTube channel, thank you. I’m so excited to continue creating content for interns all around Indiana.

What I’ve Learned This Summer

This summer has been such an amazing experience at Indiana INTERNnet. I have been so incredibly lucky to work with such amazing people and learn so much along the way. Between seeing behind the scenes of event preparation and learning how to correctly navigate the workplace, this summer has been the best learning opportunity. While learning in the classroom is important, there are some things that can’t be learned while listening to a lecture.

The Importance of Connections

Of course, meeting new people and expanding your circle of people is important. But it wasn’t until I got an internship that I realized how important networking really is. You never know who can help you get ahead or if someone you know has the perfect job for you. It’s important that you continue to grow your connections and keep up with the relationships that you make.

Asking Questions Only Makes You …
