Internships from an Employer's Point of View

By January 25, 2013

Follow me on:

I recently did an interview with Maureen Tryon, Northeast Recruiter of Nordstrom's.  Maureen's candid comments were very refreshing and she offered some excellent tips for students wishing to get hired after their internship is completed.

When asked, "What do you look for in an internship applicant," Maureen responds, "Nordstrom's is currently growing rapidly and continually seeks enthusiastic people who are excited and want to grow with the company. Interns coming into the organization should take the experience seriously. Students who keep up with current trends and seek to learn more about the company as well as the industry will be much more likely to be considered for full-time employment at the completion of their internship."

For much more valuable information for students, please read more about Nordstrom's Internship Program.
