How Finding Good Summer Internships is Like Dating

This time of year, I start to get lots of e-mails from college students (or their parents!), asking the best way to land a summer internship. So, last week I presented a tutorial on the web TV show, Career Juice, called “4 Steps to Landing a Summer Internship.” (To watch the full recording, you need a CareerHMO membership which you can get by clicking here.)

Finding an Internship is Like Dating!

One of the key points I tried to make is how similar internship search is to dating. In fact, the video clip above is where I explain the striking similarities!
