Are you blogging?
If you are looking for an internship, you should be blogging about the industry you want to be in. You don’t need 5,000, 500 or even 50 followers reading your blog, you just need to be getting your thoughts out there. When a hiring manager or future supervisor out there Googles you, don’t you want credible information to pop up and not your Facebook photos?
Keeping and maintaining a blog shows intelligence, dedication and motivation. Having an active blog shows that you are passionate about your industry, while also showing that you are interested enough in a certain area that you are constantly in the know.
With a blog you also show that you are a good writer with an opinion. Writing and sharing ideas insightfully shows your interests, just make sure you write about what you know. When someone searches for you online, they are then welcomed to a plethora of information about who you are and what you are about.
So I ask: Are you blogging? Do you want to blog? Not sure how? Any questions about blogging?
