Dream your way to a summer internship

Summer is nearly here and with summer comes the opportunity for great internships. Summer internships not only provide you with experience in your field but open doors to a career path later in life and help you decide if you’re where you want to be.

There are a few ways to find internships. Some students find theirs through the school career center, others through online searches.  A great internship program I’ve found is the University of Dreams.

University of Dreams runs summer, fall, and spring internship programs for college students in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Washington D.C., Barcelona, London, Hong Kong, Sydney, and Costa Rica. Check out their web site for more information.

Not only will you get an internship in one of these exciting cities, you will also get:

  • Career seminars via weekly Speaker Series
  • A professionally revised resume
  • Expert interview coaching
  • Daily transportation to and from work
  • And much more

There is a fee for being placed in an internship by University of Dreams but if you want to take the uncertainty and searching out of the internship experience the fee might be worth it.

Many people seem to agree the UOD program is a great opportunity and is a legitimate way to find a beneficial internship. During my reading I only really found two drawbacks to the program:

  • The cost of the program prohibits many students from participating
  • Students may be delayed in learning valuable job search skills

The cost may be prohibitive but they do offer some financial aid to those who qualify.

Check out the FAQ section on their web site to find out more about the program.
