As the school year comes to an end many college students are looking for a summer internship.

Wanting a job in the professional PR world, it was important for me to search for a summer internship, and I am so glad to have the opportunity to intern in Lakeland, FL at the Polk Museum of Art!

Because the job market is so competitive, students need to gain as much experience as possible. It’s important to fill your resume with professional work experience so that you can set yourself apart from other students who may be applying for the same job.

There are social media sites that help students network and find internships in their field.

Some of the websites include, LinkedIn and internships.com.  Not only can students search for internship opportunities, but they are also able to build relationships with clients who may potentially offer them a job!

I recommend all students to create accounts on both social media sties because it’s important to think about your future before it’s time to  graduate!
