My internship at BBC Worldwide
Hi everybody! I’m George Lee, MBA in Business Analytics Candidate, and President of Zarb Asian Pacific Student Association (ZAPSA). Currently, I’m interning at BBC Worldwide.
I found this internship opportunity online. Before I started applying for internships, I had met with the career advisors at ZARB Graduate Business Career Services many times. They were really kindhearted and helpful. They helped me change my resume, my cover letter and gave me a lot of valuable advice about the internship application. After changing my resume and cover letter, I sent them to more than 100 companies on four different websites including internships.com, internmatch.com, LinkedIn and indeed.com. Then five companies interviewed me and three of them gave me an offer at the end.
As far as I am concerned, an internship experience is extremely important for students to get ready for the future career. Please try your best to find an ideal internship and work really hard for it. “Do something today that you will thank yourself for tomorrow!” Good luck!
