It is recruiting season for us business students, which means you are most likely on the internship hunt. You might be spending a ton of time filling out tons of applications, attending pre-interview reception events, networking with company employees, and perfecting every single little thing to distinguish yourself from the other candidates.
However, getting an interview is only half the battle. The way you present yourself and demonstrate your value is what will allow you to attain that goal of acquiring the internship position. One key factor that plays a significant role throughout this process is your level of involvement.
There are so many reasons why you, as a student, should become involved, whether it is in your school, community, etc. So what are some of these so called benefits?
Build your resume to get rid of any extra white space
Develop essential skills that are transferrable to every profession
Network with professionals and other peers
Give your time to make a positive impact in the community
This is great advice! Don’t be a wallflower at school. Get involved. And if you get rejected, just think of it as more practice for the next interview.
