    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Internships. Where do I start?

Spring is in the air, and so are lingering thoughts about summer! While some students prefer relaxing and vacationing over summer, some choose to do internships, research, study abroad etc. I will mostly focus on internships in this post!

Different majors have different requirements. Some majors, such as Computer Information Systems, require that students complete 4 Credits worth of a Software Development Internship. This can be paid or unpaid. I have done 2 summer internships to date and I think I can impart some advice to fellow students or prospective students looking to do internships this coming summer or later on in their academic careers.

Now one might ask at this point, “where do I even start looking for internships?!”. The good news is that there are many resources out there and platforms where students can come across various internship opportunities. Examples include LinkedIn, Google Jobs, Indeed.com, Monster.com, and Handshake, to mention only a few. If unsure about how to use these platforms, St. Scholastica’s Career Services does a good job to prepare students looking to tackle the internship search process. I have found LinkedIn to be a very useful resource and have applied to many internships that way. In other cases, I applied through company websites themselves.
