The top 10 and bottom 10 things you should do at a job fair.
What to wear and how to prepare for the first day of your internship.
Few editors are as concerned about where interns will stay as the interns are. That just makes sense. One reason is self-interest. The other is that, while the intern has no idea where he or she will stay, the editors know that all of last year’s interns stayed somewhere and things will work out. So, the help you get will not come as rapidly or as extensively as you might like.
One key to a successful internship is to have clear, measurable and reasonable goals before you go in. Find out what those would look like and make some for yourself.
In the time between when you accept the offer and when you arrive, become an avid student of the newspaper. Do your reporting. Read the paper regularly—online and on paper.
