Inhaltsangabe: Too often students automatically think that an internship is not for them. They seem to believe that internships are just for those students who are in AP or engineering and science programs or for students who know exactly what career they want to pursue. They don't take internship opportunities offered by their school or college or seek an internship on their own. Internships offer all students a way to find direction for their future. An internship will help them gain experience in the real world, find a career area that they like-or don't like-get focused on a possible college major, and build those skills critical for success in a career and higher education. This book is a resource for all high school and community college students who want to find, get, and make the most out of an internship.

Rezension: This book is jam-packed with important information that would really help a young person to feel less anxious about the internship process thereby making them more successful! I really wish that I had had something like this when I was going through my different internships... Each individual chapter is extremely clear, thorough, and appealing. It is really spelled out for the reader, which is great. And it should be required reading starting in Junior year of high school! -- Zoe Wolf, co-director Plain Talk Cape Cod, Director of Mentorship This book is awesome! It really gives students guidance as to what they can expect and gain in an internship. It is the written "mentor" that students are looking for as they embark on their internship. -- Paige Ferraguto, Human Resource Consultant This book contains some very good, realistic tips for young people. Getting a job is becoming more competitive every day. I think, by serving an internship, the student has a definite "edge" over other students. Internships allow students to experience their career choice in a more relaxed, non-threatening way. Internships give students authentic work experiences that complement their educational experiences. Using Jessica, Luis, Michelle and Alex in examples... personalizes the information and makes it easier to understand. -- Cindy Davey, Business Education Teacher/Work Experience Coordinator, Connecticut Seniors would come back from their internships energized. For many it was the chance to be of service. For others it was an "aha" moment: "I never thought about working in this area but I really liked it. Now I know what I want to major in at college." For just about every student it fostered an appreciation of what it was like to be working in what they called "the real world." Because the internship at our school was for seniors and came near the end of the senior year it got them out of the building at a time when they were ready to be out. The senior project was the perfect antidote to senior slump. -- Doug Wilcock, Cape Cod Academy Joan McLachlan and Patricia Hess have written a most welcome guide for high school and college students who wish to engage in meaningful internship experiences. Starting with the ABC's of finding a suitable placement, this book offers a step-by-step approach to successful interviewing, as well as developing efficient work habits and realistic expectations of the workplace site. It is chock full of information and encouragement for all types of students, those who are ready to take the plunge and those who are less confident. It is indeed an indispensable primer for getting the most out of internships. -- Joan Chabrowe, former internship coordinator, City-As-School NYC
