Applying for internships (or jobs)? Need help? Ask me and the Intern Queen

By Jenna Johnson

Yes, yes, summer break is still at least four months away -- but now is the time when many college students start to make their summer internship plans.

Unsure where to look for internship listings? Not sure what to include (or leave out) on your resume? Debating taking an unpaid internship vs. working for money? Or maybe you are ahead of the game and have an internship lined up, but have questions about finding a place to live and preparing for the gig?

Starting at 1 p.m. Thursday, I will be online with the self-proclaimed Intern Queen, Lauren Berger, to answer any and all questions you might have about finding an internship -- or a job. You can submit questions through my Campus Overload Live page or on Twitter, using the hashtag #wpchat.

Send us your questions now!

Great post! We recently featured one of our students who created a twitter hashtag to promote local internships (#dmintern) in a story for our alumni magazine/website: http://www.drake.edu/magazine/?p=1019

Seems like a cool idea that fits in with the topic.
