During these unprecedented times, internships have been ruined left and right, companies have had no choice but to lay off their employees, and it is getting increasingly tougher to get a job. I had an internship lined up for the summer, but it got cancelled because of COVID and that made me very upset. Companies had to find a way to make it up to students who either had an internship with them or lost one along the way. Most came up with a Zoom internship in which once a week, there would be a speaker from a different department in the company who gave a presentation about what their experiences were, and they shared helpful tips for students still in college. Now, you may be wondering why this is so important. Companies are still working hard to provide this opportunity to you, and it will help you create a relationship with them because they know you care if you participate. Building relationships during this time is very important because it’s such a competitive job market and any advantage will help you in the long run.
