As I've been preparing for my summer 2013 internship search, there are 3 books that have been by my side. Lets face it, searching for an internship can be exciting but time consuming and stressful. An internship can often be that transition from college student to a professional in your field of study. Therefore, much time and detail must be put into finding the perfect place to intern with, formatting that resume, and writing your cover letter. If you're on the same boat as myself then I suggest you use the book titles listed below. They will be of great help!
