Summer’s right around the corner and you know what that means – it’s recruiting season! You may be thinking “What do you mean?! I’m about to start my summer internship.” And you’re not wrong, but also, you kind of are, because employers actually start recruiting for next year’s intern class now.
So, what does that mean for you?
Well, we know you’re a go-getter, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this. We also know you’re not scared of a little extra preparation, which is why EliteGrad has put together 5 helpful tips to make sure you stay on top of your game and are ready to land your dream internship next summer.
Tip #1: Make sure the email you signed up with is the same email to log into your account at students.elitegrad.com.
It goes without saying, but we want to make sure recruiters can contact you. If you haven’t created an account yet, do it! Go to students.elitegrad.com. It’s free, easy to use and we promise not to bug you – unless it’s about finding your dream internship or job.
Tip #2: Add your updated resume
Make sure you’ve uploaded your up-to-date resume to your profile. Our recruiters are excited to see your most recent experience. Pro-tip: make sure your LinkedIn profile matches your resume!
Tip #3: Add a photo to your profile
You’ve probably heard the phrase ‘It’s nice to put a face to the name.’ Recruiters feel that way, too! We recommend using a professional, recent photo – like the one you use on LinkedIn.
Tip #4: Keep your GPA up to date
Another year of straight A’s? Good for you! There’s no better way to celebrate than by getting hired, so do yourself a favor and update your GPA to reflect your most recent grades!
Tip #5: Add any new clubs, organizations, or internships
Starting an internship or part time job this summer? Recently join a new club or organization? Are you a student athlete? Do you volunteer anywhere? Add it all to your profile! Between us, it’s actually cool to humble brag on EliteGrad, plus hiring managers love it!
We’re so excited to help you find your dream internship, which will lead you to your dream job. Now go enjoy your summer, because you deserve it!
P.S. We also recommend sunscreen.
