Excerpts-
  • From the book

    Dear Reader

    In college, I felt lost. I wanted information on internships but I felt that no one really cared. My friends and I weren't on the same page when it came to the importance of internships. They weren't ready to think about their future. My college's career center didn't have any internship opportunities for students until their junior or senior year. I always wished that someone or something existed to help me with the process. Where could I go to find internships and learn what to do once I landed one?

    And so I taught myself. I created my own methods of finding internships, and, through trial and error, I learned to make the most of them. I finished college having completed multiple internships (fifteen, to be exact) and a friend jokingly referred to me as "the Intern Queen." Near the end of my senior year, I decided that I would use the knowledge gained from my internship experiences to start a business--an online internship destination that would list available opportunities and educate students on how to make the most of them. I would call it www.internqueen.com.

    Through my internships, I gained tons of insight about myself, the workplace, and my future. You don't have to do this alone. Let me be the person to guide you on your internship journey. I will provide you with strategies and techniques to find and land great internships--something nobody shared with me.

    The state of our economy calls for action. As young people, we must stand up and make things happen. If you are considering this book, or reading this introduction, you should be proud. It's easy to sit around, do nothing, and wait for opportunities to come to you. The most valuable thing I learned from my fifteen internships was that I had the ability to make things happen. Obstacles motivate me; rejection motivates me. And I learned how to deal with obstacles and rejection over the course of my internship journey.

    Yes, this is a book about internships--how to get an internship, make the most of it, and leverage it for your future. But personally, it means so much more. Ultimately these experiences carried me from where I was to where I wanted to be. They taught me that anything is possible.

    Learning and educating yourself through real-world experience will help you reach yourgoals. You have two options--to continue reading and take control of your life right now or to put the book back on the shelf. This is your life. You have an opportunity. Let me be a resource for you. Start this book, put my tips to use, and I promise you'll gain valuable experience unlike anything else.

    I have squeezed every last bit of myself into this book. My passion for internships, helping young people, and inspiring my generation is like no other. And I promise that my energy is contagious. Enjoy my book--and your upcoming journey.

    --Lauren Berger, the Intern Queen

    Introduction


    As a college freshman, I focused on everything except opportunity. My days consisted of binge-studying and social activities. I knew that big career decisions would command my attention in the not-so-distant future, but my focus was elsewhere. I didn't have an answer to the infamous question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" My parents and teachers would always say, "Lauren, get your act together and figure out what you want to do." But no one provided an action plan that I could follow to move forward. I was always being told I had "lots of potential," but I didn't understand how to turn that into success.

    So in 2002, when my mother called and said, "Get an internship," my initial reaction...
