Ever heard the expression “the early bird gets the worm”?. It holds true for up-and-coming college grads now more than ever.
In general, companies start recruiting college students heavily in the Fall, looking for students ready to join the workforce as soon as they graduate. If you’re a rising Sophomore, Junior, or Senior, look for internships that will get your foot in the door early on. More and more companies are starting to recruit interns in their earlier undergrad years, such as with the AT&T Future Leaders Internship Experience that rotates undergrads through three summers of internships while in college. These opportunities are a great way to build rapport with a company, learn about the culture and set yourself up for a potential offer before you even go back to school for the next semester.
