Ahhh, spring is here… and you know what that means? It’s internship season!
Internships. It is the most wonderful and stressful time of the year for a second-year Marketing Communications student. When I was a first-year, I always heard my second-year friends talk about their internship. Who they’ve applied for, who they want, what kind of questions they’ve been asked, and most importantly, who got which internship.
Going in to my last semester, I had an idea of what to expect. There was more than 100 companies applying to get a marketing intern from BCIT, and there was only 70 students. Needless to say, it was very competitive, and very, very stressful. I probably didn’t get much sleep until after Schmooze when I finally got an offer from my dream marketing agency. Even though it all worked out for me in the end, I wish I knew what I know now. Since sharing is caring, here are some internship tips to help make your internship process go smoothly.
