So you’ve been accepted but asked to wait a semester until January. What to do now? We are hearing from many students facing this dilemma.
Why not get a jump on your peers and experience a fall internship in a career that you might be thinking about? You’ll start to make professional contacts, build your resume, hear about exciting meet ups and panels, and have much to offer in future class discussions. Finally, experiencing the workplace can help to confirm or eliminate your thoughts on a potential a college major.
Businesses and organizations welcome a student applying for a fall internship. Summer interns are back in college, so you are not competing with dozens of students for the same internship.
We have placed many college freshman on exciting one semester internships:
- Travis was a recent graduate of Phillips Academy Andover was looking forward to starting Brown University. We place him on an internship related to engineering, computers and investments.
- Camila and Claudia, twin sisters from a private school in Puerto Rico had been accepted to Babson as January freshman. We connected the girls to a wonderful fashion startup entrepreneur in the MassChallenge incubator.
