So I haven’t the slightest clue as to what I’m doing wrong here. I’ve applied for internships, and I hear nothing, nada, zero, zilch, nil, and I just don’t get it. No dings, no acceptance letters, nothing. Bad / good, I don’t know??? But thus far, both my roommates have them, one at Euromonitor in Chicago, the other at Pfizer in NYC; but Jacek really doesn’t want to go back to the states. Anyways, all this got me thinking.
Why don’t I have one? It can’t be my covering letter as I’ve helped others write theirs and they have internships, it can’t be my CV as a number of Co’s have expressed interest in me post MBA, but don’t have summer internship programmes for MBA students. i.e. E.On, Dalkia, Statoil, etc…
So what’s the plan? Stay in Barcelona, get my Spanish up to fluency? Worst case scenario. Go back to NY? – Nah! That’s boring. Go to Poland and get my EU drivers license, and Polish ID card… possibly. But the truth is, there is still light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve got a few things in the pipeline, and one of them is working on a development project in Liberville, Gabon. No details yet, keeping my fingers crossed and man, 3 months in Gabon, and then some more in South Africa, it’s like a dream come true.
Finally – what’s the point to this post or for that matter, the combination to getting a good internship? Beats the living bejesus out of me! For some it’s a step process 1,2,3,4,5, for me it’s anything but that – guess for now we keep on trying, and diversify our search criteria.
Oh yeah, and Term 3 = lots of work. More than in term 1 I think, it’s just that now we’re all used to it.
