OK, I’m prejudiced, but I think the attached podcast prepared by Peppercom’s most recent cast of college interns is outstanding. Sure, it suffers from some amateurish production (but so does Repchatter). And, sure our erstwhile interns aren’t saying anything necessarily new or profound (ditto for Repchatter). But, this 20-minute discussion is incredibly insightful and helpful and, I believe, should be made mandatory listening for any college student seeking a career in PR.
You’ll hear Jackie Holmes and the other interns tell you exactly what to expect from your internship and exactly how you can best leverage your internship to gain full-time employment. ‘Nuff said?
One last point: I would have killed to have known some of these things before starting my first professional internship.
