Shelves: ya, college
I have been following this person for a while. She reminds me a lot of myself when I was in school, not really caring about school, just wanting to get to the real world faster. And the way to do it is through internships. She has turned that passion into a career and I have to say, good on her. It was a really good how-to book for today's college kids. Not really sure about tomorrow, but today, yes. I read this book when I was applying for jobs (as well as being in the real world for 10+ years) ...more

Lauren Berger, the founder and CEO of Intern Queen, is one hard working gal!

During college, she completed 15 individual internships, while holding down a full course load and a part time job.

Her drive, ambition, tenacity and chutzpah are all characteristics that today's youth should emulate. By graduation, with valuable experience under her belt, she knew which opportunities she was looking for and put her best foot forward to establish herself.

This book is a must read for kids in high school wh

Moderately helpful. Has some great recommendations about what to wear, how to format emails, and ways to milk connections. The rest of the book is kind of common sense about, "Don't make your facebook picture a drunken bikini shot with your boyfriend" and "Don't be late to an interview." If you're a smart person seeking an internship, you already know half the stuff in her book, or you at least do it because that's what you think could be best. Still useful and had a couple good recommendations.

This book should be mandatory reading material for students! It gave me the confidence I needed to apply for an internship, that I managed to get and it prepares you for the internship itself. Lauren Berger shares great tips on how to use the contacts you make in the best way possible, I will keep this book near me until I land my dream job which I am sure will happen sooner rather than later due to the tips in this book!

I love love this book
I think all students should read this book. It is very informative and has a lot of examples and recommendations. This book is like the bible for college students.
I would so recommend this book. On the plus side met her last year over the summer; she is very nice and knows the struggle.

This is a good book to read for those who have no idea about where to start with internships. Those who are experienced though may only find this book somewhat useful.

Also Lauren has no problem in bragging about her experiences. I understand establishing credibility, but it's a little overbearing when you keep talking about how great you are...

The book has some nice chapters, for example the linkedin/twitter chapter. Somehow the style of the book is very high school level and the book has a lot of chapters and pages that are not necessary, but if you want to refresh your memory or learn a few tips, it is worth a try. Skimmed through the last 80 pages.
Jun 06, 2015 Kim rated it it was ok
Everything mentioned is COMMON SENSE (I don't have any internship experience before and my job experience is very minimum, but this book really is about COMMON SENSE to me). Besides, I believe her success is due to her extremely extroverted personality and her major/career/industry are just for extroverted people. She said in the introduction that everyone can be as successful as her, not true.

This is the perfect career book for anyone. It doesn't have to do with just internships, but it helps you build a better resume, what to do on your first day, how to network, and so much more. It is definitely worth a read.

Again, I started to skim this book so I could have a discussion with my niece, but it was pretty good! If you swap "internship" for "job" or "position" it's great advise regardless.
