For those who are on their way to interning, congratulations! You will pick up on many new skills, meet amazing people and have a great time with your team at the office!
To those who didn't get in, hear me out. DO NOT give up. If you are hard working, determined and work SMART (this is key) you WILL land a position. Go on LinkedIn and reach out to anyone! Just ask for advice, don't even hint at wanting a handout. When someone sees how determined you are to learn, they WILL stick their necks out for you! They're millions of ways into selling-side and purchasing-side. Remember, it only takes one yes to get in.
Discover your untapped potential. You never know what the future awaits so please keep on pushing forward.
