Today’s job market is so competitive that the scramble to get your foot on the first rung of the ladder can be as arduous as the battle for a CEO position. One way to gain a comparative advantage and attain valuable work experience is to participate in an internship. Ken Kaser, John R. Brooks, Jr. and Kellye Brooks have compiled a basic but information-packed workbook to direct students through the internship experience. Accompanied by a CD-ROM with a neat “resume generator,” this book walks the reader through the entire internship process. Although this smart guide is disorganized and somewhat repetitive in areas, getAbstract believes it can inspire enthusiastic, diligent students or fresh graduates who wish to get a career head start. It also acts as a helpful handbook for human resource professionals who design internship programs.
In this summary, you will learn
- What an internship is;
- How to land the internship of your dreams; and
- How to optimize your value as an intern.
