Since the time has come again to start applying for college internships (for summer or fall), it’s very important to update all of your professional tools. This means update your:
- Cover Letters
- Digital Portfolio (if you have one)
In order to show you are actually interested in pursuing a new opportunity, you need to convince potential employers that it’s something you’re serious about. By keeping everything listed above up to date, you show that even while you’re still a student, your career is very important to you. This indicates that you’re prepared to be in an office setting and can be trusted and given responsibility.
When you’re up against another candidate, of course you want to come out on top. By keeping everything professional and current, it conveys the message that you care enough to stay on top of it and prove you deserve the internship (or job) over anyone else.
