Asked by Roh on April 6, 2018

Because of health reasons that I've dealt with for the majority of my college career, I unfortunately still haven't gotten to do an internship, but would love to. For which I have two questions: 1) What can I do that can help me get an internship? And 2) what skills, experiences, and accomplishments can I acquire or are recommended that can make me stand out against others who have had an internship experience already? Any information would seriously be appreciated!

I’m sorry to hear about your health issues. Hopefully you feel well now.
My biggest recommendation is to attend career fairs. Companies tend to recruit co-ops and interns directly from these events. It gives the hiring managers/recruiters a chance to meet you and get to know your personality.
GPA’s and extra-curricular activities tend to stand out on resumes for internships.
Good luck!
