Welcome to a special rewind episode of Motivational Mondays in recognition of National Internship Awareness Month! This week, we're embarking on a journey through the archives to bring you the best insights from our past podcast guests on navigating internships and kickstarting your career with confidence. Join us as we delve into the wisdom shared by internship/career experts Philip Wilkerson, Lauren Berger, Anna Taylor, Tim Taylor, and LinkedIn guru Mandy McEwen.

Anna Taylor of The Greater Sum Foundation and Tim Taylor of America Success emphasized the importance of showcasing practical experience and skills gained through volunteering, highlighting its significance alongside internships on a resume. They suggested that volunteering for a cause dear to you can demonstrate a candidate's commitment, adaptability, and ability to work in diverse environments, making it a valuable asset for job seekers.

Anna and Tim’s advice is perfectly rounded out by LinkedIn rockstar Mandy McEwen who expressed the importance of letting your personality shine through your LinkedIn profile. As she states, of course, keep it professional but employers today are interested in learning more about their candidates as people; what drives their passions and ambitions, what’s important in their lives inside and outside of the workplace, and what makes them stand out from the crowd in a competitive job market.

THIS WEEK, YOU’LL LEARN the strategies for networking and building professional relationships during an internship, marketing your strengths when seeking internship opportunities, and all about the growing number of Gen Z users on LinkedIn.
