"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.

"According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 26.9 percent of organizations said they 'Google' candidates or review profiles on social networks," said Bob Orndorff, associate director for career counseling at Penn State's Career Services Center. "In all, 254 organizations across the country responded to the survey. That gives an indication that employers are using social networks to take a peek at prospective job candidates when they get down to the final five or so."
It's a growing trend, according to Orndorff. He and Career Services staff are working hard to make sure students understand this and are providing students with advice.
"We stress to students that while you post information thinking that it is somewhat safe, people can get on, and not just ones you invite," Orndorff said.
Information about responsible posting on social networks is, Orndorff said, being incorporated into Career Services' student programming.
"We discuss new technologies that today's students are using, such as blogging, podcasting, and social networking sites," he said.
Orndorff added that recruiters can find good students with good GPAs.
More and more, Orndorff said, those soft skills are difference makers in the hiring process.
"Honesty and integrity were not in the top eight 10 years ago," he said.
