Can Your Internship Pass the Employability Test?

Will your internship get you hired?

Remember how in high school everyone told you you had to volunteer work to make your college resume attractive?

It's bad advice to give high school students to blindly take on volunteer work, and it's bad advice to tell college students they "absolutely must get an internship or employers won't even look at your resume."

Because at that level, you no longer stand out.
