Winter Break Fun: Searching For Internships! 

A poem by Catalina Mumm, ‘06 Former CSC Career Consultant 

So you’re sitting at home with not much to do 

Perhaps you’re planning a trip to the local zoo 

You’ve slept 12 hours every night of your vacation 

You’re refreshed-not stressed-all you need is a bit of motivation! 

It’s never too early to start thinking about a summer internship 

Especially if you want to do something fun, exciting and hip! 

Research some companies where you might want to go 

Ask for advice from all the people you know 

Get in touch with alumni working in your field of interest 

Check out CMConnect to make sure no opportunity has been missed 

The search for an internship doesn’t have to be a bore 

Once you find one place of interest, you’ll surely find more! 

And once summer comes around- 

You’ll definitely be happy with what you’ve found 

Think of the fable of the grasshopper and the ant 

The grasshopper sang all summer– 

winter arrived and his resources were scant 

So if you don’t want to get stuck with no job at all 

Start your search over break– there’s no need to stall 

Here’ a bit of inspiration 

A fabulous Dr. Seuss quotation: 

“You have brains in your head.

 You have feet in your shoes. 

You can steer yourself any direction you choose. 

You’re on your own. 

And you’ll know what you know 

And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go” 

-Oh the Places You’ll Go 

Good Luck!! And remember, Career Services is always here to help!
