Congratulations on nearing the home stretch of your Internship!
We know that students who reflect on the experience they gained as they near the end of their internship are better positioned to express all they have accomplished. This is especially important for students looking to make a pivot into a different industry or function.
Employers will soon ask what you learned and what skills you gained or refined during your internship. Get ready to answer confidently! Inventory and catalog all new skills, experience, and accomplishments, and begin infusing them into your written documents and online profiles by:
- revisiting your personal narrative
- developing new STAR stories
- updating your Linkedin profile
- revising your cover letter
- refreshing your resume’s accomplishment statements
Doing so will set you up for success as a strong candidate in a competitive market. Check out the below articles as you begin to tailor your communications. You can also schedule an appointment with your Career Coach to discuss how to approach your revisions.
