"It's never too early to start looking for summer internship positions," said Bob Orndorff, associate director of Penn State Career Services and affiliate assistant professor of counselor education.
"We recommend students research their top 10 company choices big-time," Orndorff said. "Determine what are the company's core values and where has the company appeared in the news, then use this information to craft an individualized and targeted email regarding an internship position you're interested in. Be proactive by including your resume and cover letter and state that you will follow up with a phone call. This will help set you apart from other candidates interested in the same internship position."
Penn State students, connected to the largest living alumni association in the country, have networking opportunities to a vast number of alumni contacts in varied fields of interest.
"Students can use winter break to network with Penn State alumni in an exploratory meeting," said Orndorff.
However, Orndorff says at this point, he is not aware of any student who has lost an internship offer for that reason. He provided students with suggestions for how to respond to interview questions related to the scandal.
"This situation has not changed the quality of the faculty and students at Penn State and has reaffirmed the importance of honesty in every situation," Orndorff said.
