6 Mistakes to Avoid When Applying for an Internship

By January 19, 2013

Follow me on:

Internships today are far more competitive than they were in the past, so it's vitally important to avoid these 6 deadly mistakes when applying.

Oftentimes students are not quite sure what career they want to pursue once they graduate from college. That is why it is so important to take the necessary steps to explore all career options and research the thousands of jobs that exist and then try to get some exposure prior to making a career decision. Creating targeted, error-free documents when applying for internships is one mistake you can avoid.

College students should also consider applying to as many internships as possible as well as being sure to follow company instructions when submitting your documents. Once your resume and cover letter have been submitted, it's usually a good idea to follow up with the employer to further express your interest.
