Find Your Intern Impact Zone

Let’s get it straight: An internship is a job, it’s not a nice thing to do, it’s not an optional thing to do: it’s a must thing to do to jump-start your career. However, if you want an internship you have to be prepared, be aggressive and make it happen.

Marvin A. Russell debuts his new book Find Your Intern Impact Zone: What Employers Want You To Know.

"Why Did I Write This Book?

Most internships are never advertised!

1.    The information available to students normally comes from the perspective of other students, former interns, and school career counselors: not from the perspective of the companies who actually hire interns!

2.    My tools and advice in this book come from the perspective and voice of companies and the HR departments that create internship programs and hire these interns each day.

3.    Students must know how human resources executives and corporate hiring managers make the decisions as to who should be hired and why some students fail to find internships even when they are smart, bright individuals."
