Think of it as test-driving a career before you decide what you’re going to do with your life. You’ll gain valuable work experience that you can apply to virtually every endeavor — whether you work in government or the private sector. Most of all, you will feel good about doing something worthwhile for your nation.
Applying for an internship includes developing and targeting your resume and cover letter, providing the employer with a list of references, asking for a letter of recommendation, and sending out thank you notes after the interview. Developing an effective resume and cover letter are key to getting to the next stage of the process – obtaining an interview.
