Get yourself an internship
Summer’s coming up and this is the time for internships, which often lead to a career after graduation. There are many places to look, including your counselor’s office, your college bulletin boards and the web. Between FastWeb and Google, you should be able to find lots of companies looking for interns.
Another option is the U.S. government. I took an internship with the IRS last spring and it was great. The pay was excellent, there were vacation and sick leave and flexible hours. Given the chance, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
