If you seek an internship this summer, you better start preparing now. Coming from personal experience, you do not want to twiddle your thumbs and tell yourself you’ll get to it later. Suddenly, it will be April and you’ll realize companies are already looking for interns in the fall! Our goal in this week’s podcast is to prevent this from happening to you. If you want to move in the right direction for internship search success, start by updating your resume and cover letter and cleaning up your social media presence. We understand it’s difficult to think this far ahead while you’re still scraping ice off of your car each morning, but a forward-thinking attitude might be all it takes to get ahead of the competition.

We also discuss jealousy in the workplace. In general, jealousy is a common emotion caused by feelings of insecurity about an anticipated loss. In the work environment, jealousy is likely to poke its head out if you feel threatened or insecure about your position or value at the company. Tune into our podcast below for tips on overcoming your workplace jealousy.
