#36: Internships Part 2

This week on The Money JAR: Internships Pt. 2, hosts Todd and Evan talk more in-depth about the practical aspects of getting an internship and making the most of the experience. Our first guest, Jeanne Ellis, Internship Program Advisor at Portland State University, discusses how to look for the right internship, leverage an “informational interview” and take advantage of sourcing an internship mentor.  Additionally, Ellis shares exciting tips on how students can create their own internships. Our second guest, Alison Green, author of the Ask a Manager blog shares her tips for rocking your next internship.
Jeanne Ellis stepped into Portland State University’s Advising & Career Service’s Internship Adviser position in January 2011. She has previously worked as a Nonprofit Social Services Program Facilitator, Adviser, and Business Manager. As a natural “connector” and community builder, Jeanne fills two important roles: that of a trusted advocate who can help students make real-world connections based on their interests and strengths and that of a community relationship facilitator who can assist local businesses in creating and filling internships.
Alison Green writes the popular Ask a Manager blog where she dispenses advice on career, job search, and management issues. She’s also the author of Managing to Change the World: The Nonprofit Leader’s Guide to Getting Results.
