Today's post in Internship Week is actually a guest post. (Oh my!) Today's advice comes from Shep McAllister, a sophomore at Trinity University. If the name sounds familiar, that's probably because you read his previous two contributions The Best iPhone Apps for Students and Dealing with a Car Accident in College. Let's see what he's got to say about putting yourself online for that killer internship you just zeroed-in on.
These days, any employer considering you for a position or internship is likely to Google your name. While there is no overstating the importance of maintaining a clean and respectable online identity on social networks and blogs, it never hurts to have a personal page, an online business card if you will, designed specifically to show your would-be bosses just how tech-savvy you are. You don’t necessarily need to know anything about HTML to set up an online faceplate, as there are many ways of doing this.
