Eleanor Roosevelt once said “When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die.” And that is how many people feel. So no matter what your age, background or experience, there are plenty of opportunities out there to learn, and internships is one of them.
The good news is that job growth in picking up. A survey among entrepreneurs reported this week reported that 67% of them plan to add more jobs within the first half of 2014. So while you are looking for a job in a field you prefer, you might consider doing an internship for a short term of time. You can watch out for the summer opportunities ( a month , two, or three). You may also choose to intern for longer than that.
Internships very often turn into full time jobs too, if not just great references and mentors. Join Flex Hour Jobs as we discuss Internships and how to go about looking for them in the next few months.

This week’s episode features a candid conversation with Washington Post reporter Soraya McDonald. In this interview, you’ll recognize right away the wit that shades much of her prose. Soraya is a graduate of Howard University and began covering the high school sports desk as an college intern. After traveling across the country completing journalism fellowship, internships, and eventually employment, Soraya returned to the Washington Post where she eventually became a staff reporter.
I discovered her work last year when I read an article about a female gamer who had received death threats. Soraya had been covering the story for some time, and I wanted her to speak to my article writing class.
That didn’t happen, but I’m glad this did! I’ll release her bonus material which includes a how-to make the most out of your college experience, a segment particularly helpful for students.
In this show, you also get the 411 on a new daily humor site, The Reject Pile. Founded by writer Joel Miller, the site wants your unwanted work. Thank goodness somebody finally does!
