Sarah Teitelman, '16, and The Quest to Find a Summer Internship








 Sarah, majoring in English &  International Relations,  will be spending her summer in New York City as an intern at Media Connect, one of the top public relations firms in the country.

 








I started my summer internship search in November. I know that sounds super early but some summer job applications that I applied to had to be done by January 1st, so I had to get started early! 

Before I began my search, however, I had to have a plan of attack. I made an excel spreadsheet with a list of all the companies I wanted to apply to. On the spreadsheet, I also had a link to the internship info, if the company had an application or not, when the application was due, and when I submitted the application. This was a great way to keep myself organized and not be stressed out over if I applied to an internship or not.

The next thing I focused on was figuring out where I wanted to work. I am an English and International Relations Double Major, and this summer I wanted to work in the Entertainment Industry in New York City. I made an appointment at the career center (which I HIGHLY recommend doing) and made a game plan of where I was going to apply. 

My first plan was to apply to the big companies and then work my way down. I also used websites such as indeed.com, glassdoor.com, and internships.com to find internship postings. Setting up email alerts on these websites are really helpful, so I wouldn’t miss any internship postings and I would get them all in my inbox. You can also change the settings on the search engine to where you want to work, what industry, etc. so you can see all different postings in various places across the country.

While it definitely was hard work, I got offered an internship at Media Connect PR firm in NYC in March and I am thrilled. My one piece of advice for people looking for an internship is to START EARLY. The summer internship field is very competitive and so many people are all vying for the same position. The earlier you start, the better off you will be; trust me.

I am really excited to have the opportunity to work at one of the top PR firms in the country this summer in one of the greatest cities in the work. I can’t wait to get hands on experience and learn more about Public Relations!

Conor McNarmara, chemical engineering major, Group Manager at Anheuser-Busch




Conor will be working for Anheuser-Busch as a Group Manager at their brewery in Merrimack, New Hampshire. His duties will include managing employees and the overall processes within either the brewing, packaging, or logistics department. Other responsibilities include troubleshooting problems throughout the process, looking at ways to increase efficiency, decrease waste, and becoming a certified beer taster to ensure quality products.




The Process: Career Center, CareerShift, Career

Over the past few years, I have worked with Laura Godwin in the Career Center. She taught me how to tailor my resume for different positions and to look beyond the typical job postings for available positions.

As I looked for internships in the past, Laura showed me the different ways to use CareerShift to not only look for positions, but contact information for people within companies I may want to work for/with. While searching for a job, I mainly used CareerShift to find contact information and network with employees to get a sense of how applicants can break into different industries.

My past experiences involved mostly energy engineering work, and I have a strong interest in sustainability. Originally, I was focused on energy and engineering consulting firms, but after talking with a few people, they suggested that my skills and interests might be suitable for a position in the food and beverage industry that focuses on energy efficiency and sustainability.

A search on CareerShift for engineers in the brewing industry led me to approach Anheuser-Busch. Fortunately, my contact was willing to give me advice and connected me with the right people at the plant. After sending the brewery my resume and passing a series of online exams, I was invited to begin the interview process. After 3 phone interviews, an in-person role-playing assessment, and an onsite interview, I was offered the job. The entire process took about 4 months.

Some Advice: Network!

My biggest piece of advice for anyone looking for a job or internship is to network with as many people as possible and don't be afraid to reach out to anyone whether it be in person, email or over the phone. I have found people are very willing to help college students. Usually they will leave you with a lot of advice and ideas, but if you are lucky, it might lead towards a job or internship. And get creative with your job search. Don't feel restricted by your degree or past experiences; think of industries and companies that might be of interest to you and find out how your skills and experiences can fit the positions they have available.
