Summer Internship: The Complete Guide

Summer Internship: The Complete Guide

Last summer, myself, Laura Kujava and Annie Gudorf (two other ChiU writers) wrote throughout the summer about the ins-and-outs, ups-and-downs and overall  experience as summer interns at three different companies.  Though we won’t be repeating the series this summer, we thought students this year may still find our advice and reflection relatable as summer internship season gets into full swing.

Below, you’ll find the five different posts, titles and a brief description of what you can find in each.  Browse through, let us know what you think and feel free to shoot us a question at if you want to see anything more.  Enjoy, and good luck this summer!
