    Intern or Student: Who Am I? 

    I have interned a lot throughout my time at American University, but this semester is the first time I have interned while also taking classes. I usually devote my summers to interning, so I am experiencing something a little different this term, and I like it. Due to the way I organized my schedule, I am only on campus two days a week. The other three days are spent at my internship. With such little time actually spent on campus, I am beginning to identify more
    with my intern role over my student role.

    In the beginning, I was a little upset that I was missing out on the college campus element of college due to my lack of time spent in the classroom and around other students. However, I am months into my different schedule, and I have
    realized how beneficial this switch-up will be for me in the future. As I get closer to graduation, it is becoming even more relevant for me to begin job hunting and preparing for the transition from academic life into professional life. I cannot imagine transitioning into a forty hour week without first having some time to ease into this extremely drastic life change. Thankfully, I have my internship.

    Transitioning into a New Semester… Again 

    Even though it is still technically March, the application/interview/resume sending process is in full swing for summer internships and jobs. Currently finishing up my first year in SPA graduate school, I am no stranger to the list-serve emails, notifications and ongoing networking opportunities. What really (pleasantly) surprised me today was receiving the summer internship posting for my company¬†through the American list-serve. What surprised me even more, however, was the fact that 6 out of 7 summer internship positions were already filled! (More …)

    A New Home 

    I’m excited to officially move the AU Intern blog to the new¬†American University Blogs. For the past 3 years students shared insights and advice about their internships, and shed light on incredible opportunities.

    While you can still read previous interns’ posts at auintern.wordpress.com, next semester’s student bloggers will be hosted right here. Any student with a spring internship can apply now to blog about their experience. Just email Francine Blume, AU Career Center Director of Experiential Education, or shoot a tweet to @aucareercenter.
