Internship Blues

150923_mov_theintern-jpg-crop-promo-xlarge2internEver  applied to an in internship and it says “experience needed” and then you currently feel frustrated because you do not have any experience?  We’ve all been there, and I’m here to tell you its okay. For starters, I am going to let you in on a little secret.  You can use your classes and  school work as experience. I know crazy right? Well its the truth, just use everything you learn in the classroom and put it on your resume.

It is very important that you do your best on every assignment you are given so that you can use in your portfolio. Keeping a portfolio full of your best work is very important. A good portfolio shows people that you know what you are doing and you are very good at it. Also, like I stated before you can use your classes and put them on your resume. So if you’re struggling with obtaining an internship that should help you out.

Last but not least do not be afraid to get in the game! That means do not be afraid of applying to internships without any experience. Fear will always hold you back from your dreams. I applied to over 20 internships before I actually got one. The way I look at is if I apply to as many as I can someone is bound to give me a chance. So not all hope is lost, you just can’t ever give up.
