Are you a college student that is in need of an internship this coming semester? Does the idea of working behind a desk at a major corporation sound... boring? Don’t fret, and stop scratching your head. Get ready to discover a whole new world and gain a healthy familiarity with the wild world of start-ups.
Hold up. Hear me out. In a start-up company: You will get more practical application and more value than most of the courses you are currently paying to take. Plus, you'll be valued. At a startup, everything you do matters. You'll be part of a hard working team that is passionate about what they do every waking hour of the day (and night). Entrepreneurs are a rare breed that love spending time inside their “labs” (read as office, in start-up talk).
So, if your idea of an internship is to spend hours after class making copies and running coffee for an 'A' and a half-hearted employer recommendation, then maybe you should skip the whole "start-up idea." But if you know you have what it takes to build a product, hustle and bustle, or just make a difference in the world, then it's time you start applying to start-up in your city. Go ahead and click on this video. Time to get inspired.
