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

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. 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.

Tips for conquering a fall internship

Was your unpaid internship worth it?
