The job picture is starting to look a little bit brighter for college grads and job seekers, but it still takes time, effort and a whole lot of know-how to land a great job these days. Lauren Berger knows a thing or two about how to do just that. She completed a whopping 15 internships during her 4 years in college, earning her the moniker “The Intern Queen.” Now, a few years later, Lauren has built an empire based on her expertise and in fact was recently named number 5 on Business Week’s list of top Entrepreneurs under 25. Lauren offers a crash course on how to land your dream job.
SOME OF LAUREN’S TIPS TO LAND YOUR DREAM JOB INCLUDE:
- LOOK THE PART: from what to wear to the tech devices you carry – first impressions are crucial
- E-MAIL ME: make sure your e-mail address is professional (if your e-mail addresses mentions beer or Hello Kitty – it is time for an upgrade!)
- CLEAN UP YOUR DIGITAL DIRT: employers WILL peruse your social media presence so if anything is questionable – get rid of it
- TECH FOR SUCCESS: make sure you ARE searchable and make a good impression on LinkedIn (but don’t do what 71% of 18-24 yr. olds do and browse social media during meetings!)
