How to Turn that IT Internship into an IT Job
An internship is not a guaranteed job offer, but it could be if you play your cards right. Experts weigh in on the do's and don'ts of being the kind of intern companies want to keep around.Lifeguarding may be good for your tan, bartending may be good for your social life and working at a downtown record store may increase your hip quotient, but rarely will any of them land a college student with the Holy Grail of early adulthood success: a job after college. However, a well-placed internship just might.
"Internships are a great way to get your foot in the door in an organization and I recommend them highly. There's often a gap between going to school and getting a job. That bridge between academic study and employment is easier to cross with an internship under your belt," said John Estes, vice president of Robert Half Technology.
