Advice for college students looking for something to do this summer...?
In the past couple of weeks I've received a number of emails from college students still looking for summer internships. As an entrepreneur who only spent a brief amount of time in finance, my advice is pretty limited.
I was wondering if any of the older members of the WSO community could share stories about how they conducted a last-minute internship search? Also, it'd be interesting to hear about any alternatives people pursued in the summer that turned out to be worthwhile (took x, y, z classes, traveled to Europe, auditioned for American Idol, etc.).
Judging by the inquiries I've received, any stories or insight people could provide would be much appreciated by the college-aged WSO members and visitors.
