Starting with tonight’s #InternPro chat on Twitter, YouTern is laying down a challenge:
In 60 days, become 100% ready to turn your dream career – or the next step in your career plan – into real-world reality.
It all starts tonight at 9pm ET/6pm PT on #InternPro Chat. Roll up your sleeves. Put your work gloves on. Get ready to hustle – and be prepared to turn your career dreams into real world reality!
In many parts of the country another version of the “polar vortex” is wrapping its icy arms around the landscape. Many are thinking: “Summer?! That’s years away! I’m freezing my (resume) off right now!”
Fair enough. We get it. However, a successful job or internship takes time… most often around 6 months. Time to warm-up the winter!
Honestly… do we ever stick to those “I’m going to lose 50 pounds by summer” resolutions?
In this week’s #InternPro Chat, the community got together for one last chat in 2013 and said “resolutions are for wimps… let’s talk about how to set actionable career goals and crush them!”
Those Back-to-School television commercials have started again, which (other than it’s time to go shopping) can mean only one thing… we must get mentally ready for the new school year.
Whether you’re entering freshman year, or you’re a wily college veteran with a year or more under your belt, the job market dictates that academics shouldn’t be your only focus…
In the spirit of last week’s 4th of July holiday, #InternPro Chat was about independence. In this case… career independence.
When choosing a career, many of us encounter pressure from loved ones, peers, advisors, friends. These opinions, usually well-intended but not always with our best interests in mind, weigh heavily on many young careerists. Ultimately, our career is… ours. We should – independently – make informed decisions about our careers… and find a job we love.
In this week’s InternPro Chat, our community took on this challenging issue. Check out the excellent conversation in this week’s summary…
You get hired for your first job. You’re so excited!
You start your career only to encounter older co-workers who see you only in terms of your age. They want you to “pay your dues” and “work your way up”.
Yes, you’re young in years… but you’re capable, intelligent and ready to take on the world! How do you get past the preconceived notions of the rookie?
