How to Land the Perfect Summer Gig (If you haven’t already!)
It’s hard to believe that the school year is coming to a close and summer is almost here! Summer is a great time to relax and spend time with family, but it is also a great time to gain experience in your field. Whether it be through an internship or working a retail job, there are SO many amazing opportunities out there.
Don’t have a plan for the summer yet? Don’t panic! The Brand Girls know how stressful it can be to see all your friends accepting their positions when you have no idea what you are doing. Here is how you can land the perfect summer gig (If you haven’t already!)
Use your network: Ask friends and family if they know of any opportunities in your field. You may be surprised at who can make you some amazing connections!
Do your research: There are so many companies posting new positions every day. Some of our favorite places to look for jobs/internships are Linkedin, The Intern Queen, and Free Fashion Internships. Also, do your research on the company before you apply. Make sure it is a place you know you will like and succeed!
Have a killer resume/cover letter: Before you apply for anything, make sure your resume is up to date and relevant to your field. Check out The Brand Girls blog and social media accounts for advice on how to make your resume stand out from all the rest!
