A Word From Career Services

Winter Break Fun

Searching For Internships!

A poem by Catalina Mumm, ‘06

Former CSC Career Consultant

So you’re sitting at home with not much to do

Perhaps you’re planning a trip to the local zoo

You’ve slept 12 hours every night

of your vacation

You’re refreshed-not stressed-all you need

is a bit of motivation!

It’s never too early to start thinking about a summer internship

Especially if you want to do something fun,

exciting and hip!

Research some companies where

you might want to go

Ask for advice from all the people you know

Get in touch with alumni working in

your field of interest

Check out CMConnect to make sure no

opportunity has been missed

The search for an internship doesn’t

have to be a bore

Once you find one place of interest,

you’ll surely find more!

And once summer comes around-

You’ll definitely be happy with what you’ve found

Think of the fable of the grasshopper

and the ant

The grasshopper sang all summer–

winter arrived and his resources were scant

So if you don’t want to get stuck

with no job at all

Start your search over break– there’s

no need to stall

Here’ a bit of inspiration

A fabulous Dr. Seuss quotation:

“You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

You’re on your own. And you’ll know what you know

And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go”

-Oh the Places You’ll Go

Good Luck!! And remember,

Career Services is always here to help!
