Internship  Panel  Review The  internship  panel  provided  students  a  chance  to  receive   ps  and  advice,   as  well  as  enjoy  some  workplace  anecdotes,  from  fellow  peers  and  AAF   members  who  completed  Summer  2013  internships.  The  panelists  worked  in   areas  of  account  management,  event  planning,  and  media  analysis  at  profes-­‐ sional  agencies  located  in  places  like  Chicago  and  Dallas.  

The  panel  of  “intern  experts”  spoke   to  ambi ous  students  about  the   applica on  and  interviewing  pro-­‐ cesses  they  experienced,  and  gave   the  students   ps  on  how  to  best   prepare  themselves.  If  that  was  not   enough,  several  stories  about  work-­‐ place  culture  were  sure  to  inspire.  

Tips  from  the  Pros: 

Networking  is  key!  -  con nue  to  put  yourself  out  there  and  meet  LOTS  of   people  in  the  industry;  it  may  take  some   me,  but  it  will  pay  off



Stay  informed!  -  keep  up-to-date  with  happenings  in  your  industry  of  inter-­‐ est;  research  your  poten al  employers  and  show  them  you  are  dedicated



Prepare  for  interviews!  -  have  specific  experiences  in  mind  to  answer  be-­‐ havioral  ques ons;  prepare  some  ques ons  of  your  own  for  the  company



Be  yourself!  -  if  you  are  truly  passionate  about  the  job,  it  will  show  in  your   sincerity  and  enthusiasm;  being  appropriately  conversa onal  can  help
