Summer Internship

Veteran

David Stickley San Antonio, TX

Is anyone looking for a summer intern? I would love to explore a new career path and deliver great results for an employer that is willing to teach me. I would love to learn more about business consulting but I will happily consider anything else as well. Feel free to look me up on linkedin as well.

My answer will be a little different . . . . how about stepping back, and take some effort/time to explore what your talents are - and THEN be about the business of seeking an internship that is correlated with same?

This link is to a valuable (and free) resource. I use it in my practices as a vocational counselor and both my clients and I have found it of value. IF you need some help interpreting the results, please contact me and I will share my thinking with you (also free).

Let me recommend that you call the Bar in your state/county and get a list of lawyers in your area that practice business law. Write them a letter & resume, offering your services as an intern, including whether you are working for pay &/or credits. Talk about your interest in business, how working there will offer you some unique insights. But, emphasize what you bring to them. Why their practice will be enhanced by your presence. Avoid over used phrases like "I am a people person." Note that lawyers are not fond of emotion, like a nice, dry story, full of facts & easy to follow (in date order, etc.). Best of luck.

Hi David,

Thank you for your service and for your question. I recommend using the Community page to browse by location for Advisors in your area. You can also filter by industry to identify relevant people to directly message about internship opportunities. I encourage you to cast your net widely and message several Advisors.

If you have any questions about how to use the Community page, or any other part of the website, please do not hesitate to send me a message and I will be happy to provide you with a virtual tour.

Enjoy the rest of the week!

Best,
Lauren
