What advice do you have for international students looking for an internship?
Going to career fairs was very helpful. Without any prior internship experience, the career fairs were a great opportunity to meet potential recruiters and to ask about their criteria in hiring an intern. I also learned how to carry a conversation in a formal business manner. In addition to that, I recommend all students take advantage of the resources available in the Career Center, such as asking a counselor to review your resume and cover letter.
