Taking on this big task can seem scary at first but once you think about it in small steps it can make the journey easier and somewhat enjoyable. The most important part of finding a LINK internship is figuring out what career field you want to work in. If you have no idea what you want to do, I would recommend thinking about something you are passionate about or something you enjoy doing and then figure out careers that are associated with that. I knew that I wanted to do something in the skincare/esthetics field of work which lead me to looking at spas in areas that I had family and locally. One of the biggest challenges I encountered while trying to secure an internship was hearing back from people. I sent A LOT of emails to big and small companies and I was surprised because I got more emails back from the big corporations. Any type of email is good even if they are saying no, you can cross them off the list instead of waiting for a response. I would've loved to leave town for my internship but the timing with my other commitments did not align. After looking for local spas and estheticians, I landed at Peak Rejuvenation because one of my classmate's Dad worked there. This is one tip I have in oder to secure an Internship, use your resources and who you know in order to get connected to the community.
