I remember when I was back in college looking for summer internships. It stank. No one gave me any meaningful guidance (very much including the college employment office). I had no idea how to organize the process. I had no central location to store contact information, or to easily make sure I’d done the next step. I just kind of had a stack of brochures and business cards on my desk that I tried to follow up on, and an Entourage calendar of any upcoming interviews I had. Basically, I was a mess.
Thankfully, Fog Creek’s resident organizational ninja and jack-of-all-trades, Liz, took time out of her day to help all of you college students manage your summer internship applications. So when you start applying to companies this fall, you should have a really easy time keeping everything organized in a single, easy-to-use spot.
