1. Triple-Check Your Résumé

Your résumé should be clean and clear. Proofread your résumé for any spelling errors and, if possible, have someone else read it too. The second pair of eyes will help to identify grammar and spelling mistakes your computer may not pick up.

2. Experience Comes in Many Forms

Interns should make sure that they’re including the information that employers want to know about towards the top of the résumé. You should describe all of your relevant experience in the industry, as well as any knowledge you may have acquired in the field and at college.

3. Year-Round Internships

Most intern candidates only see internships as a summer thing. However, many companies offer intern positions throughout the year, which opens up the amount of time that students can be applying and landing an internship.

4. Get Applications in on Time

This should go without saying, but you should find out when the deadline is to submit an application and get it in on time.
