LETTER FROM THE ADVISOR:

Many of you are still making plans for the summer, and let me just say, there is plenty of time to still plan so please do not stress.  You are welcome to make an appointment with me via Handshake to talk through options, including internship search strategies, if an internship is your goal.  In addition to using Handshake, I recommend this search for IT-related (new window) or this search for analyst (new window) internships (virtual).
 
A meaningful summer may not include a formal internship.  Perhaps you just need to make money.  Go ahead and take that lifeguard, retail, or babysitting gig!  Perhaps you want to focus on studying for the GRE.  Perhaps you are burnt out and want to binge on Netflix.  Do what serves you best.  Remember, you are a student first, so employers and admissions committees are not going to question “gaps” in your resume.  In addition, we are still in the midst of a pandemic which frankly means less options. Here are alternative ideas to spend our summer break beyond the typical internship plan.

Read the article below for even more ideas on how to spend your summer both professionally and personally. You are soooo close to the finish line!  Whatever you decide to do this summer, please take time to enjoy your break!  You deserve it.  

All the best,
