Written by: Jaharra Simmons Howard University CO 2016 Landing your dream internship may seem a little challenging but with a little guidance it can be a breeze. The following steps can make this process just a tad bit easier. ·                 Research: There’s nothing worse than spending an entire summer at an internship that you hate, so research is key. Do as much research as possible while applying to internships, this can ensure that you will enjoy your experience more. ·                Network: Building relationships with recruiters is a great way to stand out from your peers. Subtle communication such as a few emails per week and attending information sessions shows these recruiters that you are serious about the opportunities they’re offering. ·        Resume Critiques: Having your resume critiqued by a professor or even an industry professional can be very helpful. When working on your resume, make sure you are tailoring it to the industry you are interested in entering. This shows the employer that you’re qualified for the position and gets right to the point in detailing your experience or knowledge about the industry and the particular company you are pursuing.  ·         Mock Interviews: It’s best to be prepared so a practice interview can do nothing but help. This can prepare you for the actual interview process and equip you with answers for questions the employer will possibly ask. Look up the company on websites like, Glassdoor.com and you can find specific questions that the company tends to ask during interviews. Ask a roommate, classmate, professor or counselor who is invested in your success to conduct your mock interview.  ·         First Impressions: Before you go to the interview make sure you do your research on the company’s corporate culture. This will consist of the dress code, core values and overall feel of the company. Make sure when going to the interview you appear as if you already work there, dress to fit the part and appeal to the company’s culture in the best interview attire that you own. Also, research the history of the company so you seem knowledgeable and up-to-date on the current happenings within the company and how they are performing against competitors. I hope these tips help in landing your dream internship. Also remember, confidence and persistence is key and the employer will notice your efforts!   Editorial Credit - Jaharra Simmons Spring 2015
