Although sending a thank you note after an interview does not signify your qualifications for the position, it can set you apart from equally qualified applicants if the knowledge and skills of each applicant is significantly close. I always suggest that applicants do things to set themselves apart from the competition - in a good way of course.
Sending a thank you note immediately after your interview may be just the thing that sets you apart. Honors for good grades and awards for community service, excellent attendance, or for special talents in athletic/music/art should always be included on your resume. Why? Because they set you apart. Why would you not want to let a potential employer know the good things about you? The same goes for thank you notes.
Immediately after your interview, be sure to send each interviewer a personalized thank you note reaffirming your interest or mentioning an important aspect of the meeting. Again, you want to make the employer remember you, in a good way, and you want to create a strong desire for them to really want to hire you as well.

If you are looking or have already found an internship for the summer, we'd like to hear your story.
I have been receiving many phone calls and emails from students who are working hard to find a summer internship. Many students are putting together their resumes during spring break and are hoping to get them out before they return to campus next week.
Are you wondering what you are doing for the summer?
It's important for students to begin thinking about their future career and life after graduation. Thinking long term and doing something to increase your knowledge and skills in your field, will help in the long run when students are actually seeking full time employment after graduation.
Internships can help you gain knowledge you may not learn elsewhere; and they offer evidence to employers that you have real world experience in the field. Internships also help you to make networking contacts that can be used later in your career and in your future job search. Another major advantage is the potential of the internship turning into a full-time job offer since many companies use their internships to pre-screen and train potential new employees.
Many students are able to come up with creative solutions when planning out their summer vacation and may even end up doing both an internship and a job. There are many internships available that do not require students to work full-time. Of course, if you are lucky to find a paid internship; you may have the best of both worlds without even trying.

This week I was working with 2 students studying abroad on how to prepare for a phone interview. We each did a mock interview and I gave them some information and a list of questions to help them to prepare themselves for the interview. One interview went off without a glitch while the other one encountered a few problems. Since phone interviews can often be the first step in the interviewing process, it's key that students prepare themselves beforehand.
Below are some keys to successful phone interviewing:
- Be Prepared
- Be Prompt
- Use a land line when possible
- Be sure you have a quiet uninterrupted place to take the call
- Write a thank you note
A phone interview can be a great opportunity for you to make a positive first impression and one that will hopefully get you invited to a successful second round.
Now's the time when students realize that if they want to do something for the summer, they need to get going. Whether it's a summer job , internship, volunteer or community service experience, or some type of collaborative research, deadlines are quickly approaching and students must soon apply.
A couple of stumbling blocks that I see students run into is one that they find it hard to find the time to look for summer internships while keeping up with their college coursework at the same time. Another thing I often encounter is that many students have no idea about what they want to do or the wide range of options that are available for them to pursue.
I usually begin working with students by making sure that they have a professional resume that they are comfortable sending out. Unless a student has a resume, they are unable to apply even if they find viable options. The next thing is what type of experience are they hoping to pursue? Are they looking for something in their major or perhaps in an area of interest they'd like to explore?
Last but not least it's important for students to know that all internships are not created equal. Personal circumstances can affect important things like the timing of the internship, location, and if the internship needs to be paid. Just like no internships are created equal, student requirements are often very different as well.
As each student seeks to find a summer experience that meets their personal needs, it's important for students to establish a list of the type(s) of experiences they can accept. At this point it's important to begin the search and uncover those opportunities that best meet the individual student's needs.
