To all college students currently applying for internships: It’s a tough world out there. Been there, done that. You have my sympathies. Here’s a little poem to take your mind off of a things for a bit.

 

I’ve tweaked my resume just right
It only took me half the night
 
The other half I did concede
To Monster.com and Indeed
 
I’m tired, starved and want to quit
I don’t think I can handle it
 
But I need a summer internship
Applying for such is quite the trip
 
Why start now, it’s barely fall!
But postings persist, and still I bawl
 
“I’ll never meet these qualifications,
I still haven’t finished my education!”
 
To be an intern in PR
You must be some kind of media czar
 
Their job descriptions read like so
To my self-esteem, it’s quite the blow
 
Love PR? This job’s for you!
Writing, media, design efforts too!
 
Here we hire only the best
And so these skills you must possess
 
Years of experience: 3-5
It’s fast-paced, and here, you’ll thrive
 
We work with the top businessmen
So 8 years experience with Windows 10
 
Portfolio should have a good amount
But FYI, class work won’t count
 
Speak Spanish, German, and Chinese
Cause at this firm, we aim to please!
 
10 years working with WordPress
jQuery, HTML, CSS
 
Javascript, AJAX, HTML5, 
SEO, Facebook API
 
Basic design so we look tip-top
Know InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop
 
Master’s degree is preferred
A graphics wiz, computer nerd
 
Go-getter, maverick, PR geek
A steal at 55 hours a week! 
 
If you get this spot, you’ve got it made!
Just one more thing, it’s all unpaid

Good luck out there! You’ve got this!

Some thoughts on (finally) graduating

Much like the folks who had a virtual courthouse wedding and waited on a reception, I finished my final MBA class in December of 2019 and just recently attended my graduation ceremony.
