During the spring semester, many companies and corporations around the country search for college students to fill their summer internship positions. These companies want students who are passionate, diligent, and self-motivated.
You do not need a 4.0 GPA to land the internship of a lifetime, but you will need a well-executed strategy. Many college students will not even reach the interview process because they failed during the application process.
