Do your research

Make a list of your dream companies. Give yourself options, but also be intentional and apply to internships you would actually want.

FOLLOW UP!

This is so important. People are busy and often see your email but forget to respond. Follow up and make sure the company knows how interested and excited you are about the opportunity. Don’t be afraid to follow up several times. Persistence is key!

Let’s talk experience

Don’t only talk about experience you have, but talk about what experience you want to gain from the internship. Most companies are looking for interns who are EAGER to learn and show excitement for the opportunity, not necessarily only students who have a ton of experience. Don’t underestimate yourself! You’ve got this.
