A Good Internship Begins with a Little Faith

A client came to see me just before Christmas.  He was a college sophomore looking for an internship.  I asked where he wanted to be an intern.  Without hesitating, he rattle off the three top companies in the field where he wants to work.  He called me today to say that he’ll begin an internship with one of those companies this May.  How did he do it?  He studied the market and demonstrated that he had what the company was looking for.  More importantly, he had enough faith in himself to try.  Yes, college students and recent grads are in a tough job market.  However, those who are smart in how they look for work can still be very successful.  The first step is to look in the mirror and tell yourself:  I can do it.
