Well fellow Spartans, I’m back! I don’t know about you, but I did not expect to be as busy over the past month as I have been. With no internship to give myself a rigid schedule, I found myself picking up multiple side jobs here and there to fill my time. When you add in classes and the Virtual Internship Experience, I found myself struggling to keep up. Fortunately, the summer is ending, and we are almost one month away from the beginning of our last year at Michigan State. Time sure did fly by even if the usual summer activities were hindered by the presence of the Coronavirus.
As we move into this last month of summer, I am really going to be going all in on the full-time job search. Before I get focused on that, I am super excited for National Intern Day. For those of you who don’t know, July 30th is recognized as National Intern Day, and the Michigan State has set up a fantastic virtual internship experience that I am so excited to participate in. Listed below is the schedule that I am planning to participate fully in!
