From the Interns' Desk: Interview Tips
Our interns share their best interview advice.
At #TeamIvanka HQ, we're now four interns strong—and we may be biased, but we truly feel like we've got some of the best and the brightest on our team this summer. In a continuation of our series by—and for!—interns, we've asked each of ours to share their no. 1 tip for landing a summer position. College students, listen up.
It might sound cliche, but confidence is everything. People see through low self-esteem like glass. Have confidence in yourself and the decisions you make along the way, and other people will have confidence in you, too. Most importantly, don't ever let anyone try to tell you what you are (or aren’t) capable of. You control your reality, so don't settle for anything less. If you want that big job with a lot of responsibility, go get it! If the job you want doesn't exist, you may even be able to create that position for yourself. I came out here from Iowa on a class trip and made a point to introduce myself to the Ivanka Trump team. Being a relatively new company, they hadn't really had interns before. I inquired about the possibility of becoming an intern for IT and now I'm here for the summer.
