I been gone for far too long. School, work, and my new internship has definitely kept my busy (in a good way!) Quick update is I will be doing an online book club on the book, “Never Eat Alone” by Keith Ferrazzi. If you are interested in joining, please visit http://brightworm.blogspot.com/
Also, Interning is great. With budget cuts happening (I’m in California), it is increasingly competitive out there. Landing a job is hard, and a great way to gain experience before graduating is through internships and/or volunteer work.
Join a club, start a club, attend events, meet some people. The people you are in school with right now will be a part of your network once you graduate. Give time to those relationships. Never Eat Alone is a great book to read on how to network and keep up relationships.

Have you interned? What value did it provide for you? How crucial would you say internships are for current college students?
