Big things have happened in the last few weeks. They surprised me too.
I’m officially in Week 4 of my internship at the Financial Post and things are definitely humming. I have stories on the go, I’m pitching regularly and every day I’m still wondering how much I can soak up in the next few weeks. Summer is practically flying by.
I wrote recently how I thought I wasn’t really sure what to do next after coming back from South America. I applied for a few jobs and things, but they all didn’t work out (bad fit, didn’t get hired, irrational inner fear).
I read recently there is such thing as ‘doing too many internships’. Corinna vanGerwen writes in Masthead Online: “You can do as many as three, but more than that and potential job employers may ask why you haven’t found a job yet.”
I personally think this is the year to break that rule.
Personally, I haven’t signed up for just two or three internships. I plan on doing at least five.
