Attention High School, Undergraduate and Graduate students!
The truth about getting your degree is that the paper diploma won’t necessarily get you the paper money. What sets you apart from your many competitors is the experience you bring to the interview. If the only thing on your resume, besides your Undergraduate degree, is your customer service experience from your part-time job you might be interested in this list composed to help beef up your resume.
Many of these internships are available on Long Island or NYC. Some even offer payment! Though, if they aren’t paid they most likely offer college credit. Another reason for applying to internships is the fact that many undergraduate students don’t always know what they want to do after school. So, if you’re having trouble finding your niche within your major, choosing an internship might help show you what professional opportunities are available to you.
Also, check out some helpful tips and the short list of local community organizations that will be great experiences for you while you work on your degree.
