Internships: Stoking Your Passions

Mac: I don't really want to waste my time with internships or 'research' opportunities. Can I still get a job?

As a college student or first-time job seeker, you need to develop skills that an employer will find valuable. There are many different ways to do this. However, the more related your choices are to the roles for which you will be interviewing, the more relevant they will be to your prospective employers.

If you find yourself thinking that certain internship opportunities are a waste of time, you may be looking in the wrong places. Ask yourself what you really enjoy doing and look for internship or research opportunities that allow you to express these skills. Success is highly correlated with doing things that you enjoy: Richard Branson, Bill Gates... You can see the passion whenever they speak about their companies.
