Get a summer job with real meaning
While lifeguarding or making fancy coffee drinks might be fun summer jobs, they won't really help you get ready for your post-graduation career. Instead, why not check into a summer internship that will let you put your classroom knowledge into practice? Rose-Hulman summer interns get paid really well, and employers trust them with real projects. You aren't hired to grab doughnuts and coffee for the people really doing the work!
How do you find an internship? Start with eRecruiting. Many companies use this service to post summer internships. You might also meet a potential internship employer at one of our three Career Fairs during the year. Your professors may know of internship possibilities, and you could also check with employers in your hometown (that could make your parents happy to have you back for the summer!).
There is a special internship funded by the Lilly Endowment: Entrepreneurial Internship Program (EIP). This internship takes place in Indiana companies that have been approved for the program. Stop by the Career Services Office or contact Kevin Hewerdine to find out about opportunities in this program.
